CPA: Philipp Gehmacher "The Slowest Urgency (an environment)"
Philipp Gehmacher has been developing his unique movement vocabulary for 20 years. In "The Slowest Urgency", he is looking for an urgency that manifests in bodies: to move the things that move us.
Bodies in the process of becoming, in ever different reconfigurations, are driven by an urgency that instantly interlaces the inner and outer landscapes and, at the same time, stretches the moment the wave breaks by slowing it down as much as possible. The choreography thus paradoxically oscillates in opposite directions – between utmost slowness and utmost urgency, as well as between close groups and scattered singularities. It unfolds while taking its respective "environment" into account, i.e., the Jugendstiltheater on Baumgartner Höhe at the Wiener Festwochen and Galerie 5020 at Sommerszene Salzburg in 2021, mumok at ImPulsTanz in 2022 and the Großer Saal in Seestadt Studios at the CPA in 2023: it’s as if the performance venues and the body landscapes of the performers are generating each other, breathing new life into the location-specific black box with a white cube.
