Thomas Proksch

His choreographic interest lies at the intersection of artistic disciplines such as performance, installation, improvisation, music (sound generation / DJing), and voice. His recent solo piece LE_GO was shown in the exhibition Immersions: Welt ohne Aussen at Martin-Gropius-Bau Berlin in June 2018, produced in residency at Villa Empain Brussels. Other works by the artist include the vocal stereo-sound treatment PLEASURE DISCO (2014) and the strobe solo KARL LEHR (2012). Since 2013 he has interpreted and remixed numerous works by the artist Tino Sehgal, often working with scores for movement and singing—e.g., at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2016), the Venice Art Biennale (2013), Documenta13 Kassel, Jemaa el-Fna Square Marrakesh (2016), “Prelude to the Shed,” New York (2017). Those experiences also took shape in the happenings of the vocal beat collective BOYZ IN THE WOODS, which was founded in 2014 with the artists Balz Isler, Justin F. Kennedy, and Gael Cleinow (Auawirleben Bern, Tanztage Berlin 2015, Art Basel, etc.). Further collaborations were done, for example, with Mesut Arslan, BETRAYAL (Toonelhuis Antwerp) or Rita Vilhena, EMERGENCY PLAN (Impulstanz Vienna 2014).
