walk+talk #16

How do dancers and choreographers talk about their work?

In 2008 Philipp Gehmacher invited ten choreographers, including Meg Stuart, 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 2011 Gehmacher compiled another series for Kaaitheater, comprising existing solos and newly commissioned work. Each evening there were two dancers or choreographers on the programme. Meg Stuart performed on March 17.

Walk+Talk on Oral Site

Oral Site is a new open source software and platform that Myriam Van Imschoot initiated as part of her artistic work on orality, transmission and interview archives. In 2011 it has been developed by a team of coders, writers and sound specialists of Sarma, Constant and Rits, who share an interest in oral and experimental publication formats. Walk+Talk#2 is published on Oral Site. Please use a recent version of Firefox to open the link.
