Since the introduction of Universal Time in 1884, clocks all around the world have ticked almost synchronously. In contrast, humanity’s relationship to its own living environment has gotten increasingly out of time. In Inge Gappmaier’s performance now, alternating between measurable time and perceived time, the poetry of bodies intensifies as it gets more and more entangled with an immersive sound to create aesthetically charged emotional and receptive spaces. The audience is invited to freely move through now and track their own sense of time.

In her dance performance installation now, Inge Gappmaier allows the audience to feel moments in time as units of space. Focusing on the specific experience of our present, the piece understands the now not as a volatile moment on a linear timeline but as a permanent state of definite duration. In a suspenseful, multi-dimensional walk-in universe of sound and movement, five dancers feel their pulses and accumulative moments of their times in overlapping solos, searching for where the technical timescale gets inscribed in someone’s self-conception. The now becomes a global turning point, a moment to articulate emotions and the only space for reception and agency. we. here. now.

Inge Gappmaier works as a freelance choreographer, dancer, dance educator, dramaturge and dance scholar. In various artistic formats, she examines the contemporary understanding of the human body between poetry and socio-political structures. Inge studied choreography and performance at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Gießen and contemporary dance education at the Music and Arts Private University of Vienna. She received various scholarships, teaches amateurs and professionals, and is active in matters of cultural policy. In international collaborations, Inge Gappmaier has presented her work, among other places, at brut Wien, Kosmos Theater, Kubus EXPORT, Tanzhafenfestival Linz, Plesni Teater Ljubljana, and the Albanian Dance Meeting. www.ingegappmaier.at

Since September 2023 she continues her artistic practice researching the layers of the body and its expressions as a student of the New Performative Practices master program at Stockholm University of the Arts.

Since his graduation in 2010, he has been working as a sound artist in visual art and as a composer and musician in the performing arts. Outside of his solo performances, which often feature algorithmic composition/improvisation, he likes to collaborate with artists from various genres, such as Melanie Maar, Georg Blaschke, and Alex Franz Zehetbauer. In 2022, he received a state scholarship for composition. His works have been presented in Austria and internationally.
