Inge Gappmaier: p a r t i c l e s

“p a r t i c l e s” is a contemporary choreography taking place in the historic building of the Landesgalerie in Linz. The human body in its materiality and multidimensionality will be juxtaposed to the gallery’s current exhibition “Bauhaus-Beziehungen Oberösterreich”. Exploring spatiality and logic of their own bodily movements, the kinetic know-how of the dancers contrasts against the inherent structures of their surroundings.
Inge Gappmaier’s contemporary choreography “p a r t i c l e s” draws conceptual parallels between geometry and movement; between human bodies and material. The choreography deals with principles that also shaped the artwork of the Bauhaus movement of the 1920s. Interesting parallels and contrasts emerge throughout “p a r t i c l e s”, juxtaposing contemporary choreography to the dances of the Bauhaus movement documented in the current exhibition.
