"walk+talk" ist eine seit 2008 bestehende Lecture Performance Reihe, initiiert durch den österreichischen Choreografen und Tänzer Philipp Gehmacher. "walk+talk" lädt Choreografen dazu ein, eine Soloarbeit zu entwickeln, wobei Bewegen und Sprechen parallel gesetzt werden. Thema der Arbeiten ist das künstlerische Konzept des jeweiligen Choreografen, das individuelle Verständnis von Körper-in-Bewegung und die Geschichte der eigenen Praxis.

Über 20 Künstler*innen waren bisher an fünf Editionen des Projekts beteiligt, in Wien, Brüssel, Stockholm, Reykjavik und Berlin. Die Ausgabe von "walk+talk" in Poznan versammelte vier Solo Lecture Performances von in Berlin, Stockholm und Warschau lebenden und arbeitenden Choreografen. Drei davon, Nummer 33, 34, und 35 werden im DOCK 11 präsentiert.

walk + talk no. 32-35 fand am 23.-24. Juni 2017 im Rahmen des Old Brewery New Dance Malta Festival 2017 in Poznan statt, kuratiert von Joanna Leśnierowska und Mateusz Szymanówka bei Art Stations Foundation by Grażyna Kulczyk.

“walk+talk” is a lecture performance series initiated by the Austrian choreographer and dancer Philipp Gehmacher in 2008. In “walk+talks” choreographers are invited to create a solo work that makes the moving and talking run parallel. The topic is the artists’ concepts, the individual understanding of their body-in-motion and the history of their practice.

Over 20 artists have participated in five editions of the project that have taken place in Vienna, Brussels, Stockholm, Reykyavik and Berlin by far. The Poznań edition of walk+talk included four solo lecture performances, by choreographers living and working in Berlin, Stockholm and Warsaw. Three of them, number: 33, 34 and 35 will be presented in DOCK11.

walk marks the time that passes, the time needed by movement to unfurl itself. talk stands for the assertion, announcement or speaking out, as well as for the complexity of voicing the truths that constitutes one, that one embodies, truths that both gain and lose meaning in their being expressed. — Philipp Gehmacher, excerpt programme note “walk+talk”, Tanzquartier Wien, March 2008

“walk+talk” is a practice and method for doing and sharing in a public context as much as a practice that says something about one's practice. It is sometimes less about description and explanation than about the desire to speak becoming a gesture itself, a gesture of utterance running parallel to the movement. Maybe different forms of speech will appear, and some things will be better left unnamed. — Philipp Gehmacher, programme note “walk+talk”, Kaaistudio's Brussels, March 2011

walk + talk no. 32-35 took place in the framework of Old Brewery New Dance at Malta Festival 2017, 23-24 June 2017, curated by Joanna Leśnierowska and Mateusz Szymanówka at Art Stations Foundation by Grażyna Kulczyk

The transcriptions of 27 “walk+talks” by 21 different choreographers are available on the Belgian website for multi-modal documentation called Oralsite. oralsite.be/pages/Walk_Talk_Documents




Alice Chauchat lives in Berlin and works as a choreographer, performer, teacher, editor and other activities related to choreography. She created performances together with a.o. Louise Trueheart, Anne Juren, Alix Eynaudi and performed/collaborated in project by a.o. Jennifer Lacey, Xavier le Roy, Mårten Spångberg, Juan Dominguez. She co-developed numerous choreographic projects and platforms for knowledge production and exchange in the performing arts (everybodystoolbox.net, teachback vienna, praticable, nobody's business etc.). In 2010-2012 she co-directed Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers, a centre for artistic research in the Parisian suburbs. 2017-19 Alice is guest professor at HZT Berlin.

Frédéric Gies is an artist in the dance field, based in Stockholm. He is head of programme of the MA in choreography at Stockholm University of the Arts. He creates his pieces alone or in collaboration with other choreographers (Anna Pehrsson, Jefta van Dinther, DD Dorvillier, Manuel Pelmus, Isabelle Schad, Alice Chauchat, Frédéric de Carlo, and Odile Seitz) or with artists from other disciplines (Fiedel, Anton Stoianov, Daniel Jenatsch, Andrea Keiz, Gavin Youngs). He also danced in pieces of other choreographers such as Cristina Caprioli, Jefta van Dinther, Antonja Livingstone, Petra Sabisch and Isabelle Schad. His latest works are tightly connected to techno music and to his club and rave experiences. In all of them, he collaborates with the Dj Fiedel as well as with the visual artist Anton Stoianov.

Anna Nowicka is a choreographer and a performer. She studied dance at Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD), and at the HfS Ernst-Busch/HZT in Berlin (MA in Choreography). She also majored in psychology at the University of Warsaw. Her artistic explorations focus on the relationship between the dreaming and the dancing body, and on the choreography of the imagined. She is a dream opening practitioner at the School of Images of Catherine Shainberg, expanding her research through intense imagery work with Bonnie Buckner and movement practice with Rosalind Crisp. She divides her life between Berlin and Poland.

Philipp Gehmacher lives in Vienna and works internationally. He is a choreographer, dancer and student at the University of Applied Arts Vienna in the “Sculpture and Space” programme whose works on gesture, space and touch have featured in numerous festivals and venues around the world. He has collaborated across art forms, most importantly with the choreographer Meg Stuart. Gehmacher initiated the lecture performance series walk+talk and is currently focusing on objects and sculpture. He received the renowned Jerwood Choreography Award and the Austrian Advancement Award for Dance from the BMUKK.
