Alex Franz Zehetbauer (born 1990 in Brooklyn) is a performance and music artist currently based in Vienna. His practice roams the insurmountable possibilities of the human voice and the velvety expanse of movement in water. He is fascinated by the 1+1=3 nature of polyphonic engagement and the magical something that comes not from any single person but the space in between groups. Alex is trained in Aguahara and offers private sessions of his own take on this aquatic bodywork, incorporating his lexicon of underwater voice explorations and their capacity to caress the physical body. He studied vocal performance, dance, acting and composition at the Experimental Theater Wing at NYU Tisch School of the Arts and the International Theater Workshop in Amsterdam. Alex's works have been shown in New York, Baltimore, Vienna, and Madalena, Azores and have been supported by Leimay Cave, Arts Unfold, INK Initiative, Arbeitsplatz Wien, Evening Hours NY, Huggy Bears, APAP, brut Wien and Wien Kultur; he has been awarded the BKA Startstipendium für Musik und Darstellende Kunst (2018), the TURBO Residency - ImPulsTanz 2018, the TQW Training Scholarship (2019), and the danceWEB Scholarship (2019).
