Philipp Gehmacher

In Their Name


After his investigation of space as a condition for social and interpersonal relationships, Philipp Gehmacher focuses more on movement again. Three performers appear in the middle of arrangements made from objects that are standing, lying or hanging in a precarious interaction. Everything strives for momentarily successful agreement – and sets something in motion that time and again eludes the stabile framework of meaning.
