Anthology walk+talk


In 2008 Philipp Gehmacher invited ten choreographers to talk about their language of movement on a large empty stage in a Viennese theatre. The result was a surprising multiplicity of voices and stories: every solo testified to a unique view of the body, movement and the confrontation with space. In the week of 15-19 March 2011, Gehmacher and visual artist Alexander Schellow organized a second “walk+talk” series at the Kaaistudio’s in Brussels.

On this occasion, next to the lab Slowing down the process of disappearance, Sarma has compiled a collection with a few essays on “walk+talk”, as well as writings by the invited artists: Eleanor Bauer, Philipp Gehmacher, Rémy Héritier, Mette Ingvartsen, Daniel Linehan, Martin Nachbar, Chrysa Parkinson, Alexander Schellow and Meg Stuart. It concerns essays, scores, self-interviews and interviews – all reflections on practice that relate to the specific context of “walk+talk” and give an insight in the ways artists speak and write about their work, method and poetics.

In February 2013, Sarma and Philipp Gehmacher launched the publication walk+talk documents on Oral Site. On that occasion, the anthology was updated with writings by artists who participated in the walk+talk series in March 2008 at Tanzquartier Wien: Antonia Baehr, Boris Charmatz and Sioned Huws.

The anthology contains furthermore essays about walk + talk, of which several were commissioned by Sarma:
