Two bodies manipulate and adjust themselves. As they look at each other in the right direction, they become fascinated by their vulnerabilities. What started with physical interaction and intense movements subtly turns into a mysterious and fascinating video installation. This work renews the choreographic partnership between Meg Stuart and Philipp Gehmacher that started with the worldwide success Maybe Forever and marks the arrival of visual artist Vladimir Miller in the creative process.
Philipp Gehmacher received the Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award, in 2000, and the prestigious Jerwood Choreography Award two years later. He was the first dance artist to be awarded by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture, in 2009. In the following year, he premiered In Their Name at Festival Steirischer Herbst.
Vladimir Miller lives between Berlin and Vienna, researching space, relationships and perception in visual arts. He created the video installations Dead Reckoning (2009) and At Arm’s Length (2010) with Philipp Gehmacher.
