Philipp Gehmacher


From 1993-1999 Philipp Gehmacher, born in 1975 in Vienna, studied at the London Contemporary Dance School and the Laban Centre London. "In the absence", "Holes and Bodies" and "embroyder" are his first choreographic works, created between 1998 and 2000 in London. Based on his reflection on gesture, touch and space he developed the duo "good enough" for the opening of Tanzquartier Vienna in 2001, followed by "mountains are mountains" (2003) as Gehmacher’s first ensemble piece. In 2004 he created different versions of "incubator" for Vienna, Berlin, Brussels and Lyon. Philipp Gehmacher collaborates continuously with renowned institutions for contemporary dance in Europe, which coproduce and present his pieces.
