The unique project walk + talk is an attempt to integrate movement and language on stage. At the invitation of Tanzquartier Wien, Gehmacher curated STILL MOVING in 2008. For this occasion he developed a series introducing the specific format of walk + talk. Gehmacher asked a number of dancers and choreographers to speak out and give their thoughts on the body in motion. This has resulted in widely varying outcomes: from improvisations to manifestos, from poetic moods to explanations of people’s own dance practices. Previous participants amongst others were Antonia Baehr, Boris Charmatz and Meg Stuart.
