In her dance piece protect., dancer Inge Gappmaier creates a hypnotic atmosphere full of suspense by staging a duet with herself. Accompanied by an intensely uncanny soundscape, she stages questions regarding the isolated, narcissist self and its reflection in social media.

The key topic of protect. is digital self-observation and the difference between mirror image, virtual self and physical reality. Inge Gappmaier’s performance picks up on the practices of ego construction in social media, filter bubbles and their algorithms as well as the urge for self-optimisation in our society. What happens to our concrete body when our gaze gets stuck in our own reflection? protect. brings the body to the stage in its self-observation as a contour between nature and culture, putting protective spaces and power structures into question as well as loneliness, duality and self-control. The piece invites audiences to dive into a multi-dimensional world of geometry, accumulation and intuition.

Inge Gappmaier is a researcher, creator and teacher in the field of contemporary choreography and dance. Her works have been presented at the Landesgalerie Linz, at Tanztage Klagenfurt and at the imagetanz festival in Austria as well as in such international contexts as the Life Art and Performance Festival LAPSody Helsinki, Tanzplattform Deutschland, Mousonturm Frankfurt, Frankfurt LAB and Ganz novi in Zagreb. Inge Gappmaier used to teach at the City of Vienna’s Music and Art Private University and at Justus Liebig University in Gießen, Germany.
