Ivana Müller

 
 

Ivana Müller, coreografa, regista, performer, scrittrice, è nata in Croazia, dove ha vissuto sino a 22 anni. Dopo l'università a Zagabria si trasferisce ad Amsterdam per studiare danza e coreografia alla School For New Dance Development. Nel frattempo si interessa sempre più alle arti visive e frequenta la Art Academy di Berlino. Come performer ha lavorato con diverse compagnie in Croazia, Francia, Belgio, Olanda. Le sue creazioni, il cui tema ricorrente è il corpo e la sua rappresentazione, Indivisible View (1999), Remoted (2000/2001), Lovely Performance (2002), List of Instructions (2003/2004), How Heavy Are My Thoughts (2003), Under My Skin (2005), sono state presentate in festival e teatri in Europa e USA. Il lavoro di Ivana Müller, di cui è nella maggior parte dei casi interprete e regista, affronta i temi dell'identità, della mis-interpretazione e delle storture logiche, della percezione e del linguaggio. Nelle sue crazioni utilizza diversi codici: danza, arti visive, video, testi, creando forme 'bastarde' influenzate da fonti apparentemente distanti, dalla cultura pop alle scienze cognitive. La sua produzione artistica è eterogenea, e non si focalizza su una specifica forma performativa. I suoi lavori fondono spunti scientifici, letterari, filosofici e fenomeni artistici con storie personali, ossessioni e ricerche artistiche individuali, in una forma che definisce self-invention o self-fictionalization.
 
 
Ivana Müller is a choreographer, artist and author of texts. Through her choreographic and theatre work ( performances, installations, text works, video-lectures, audio pieces, guided tours and web-works )she re-thinks the politics of spectacle and spectacular, re-visits the place of imaginary and imagination, questions the notion of « participation », investigates the idea of value and its representation, and keeps on getting inspired by the relationship between performer and spectator. Although she creates through various forms, theatre remains the principle context in which she develops and presents her work. Her pieces – amongst others How Heavy Are My Thoughts (2003), Under My Skin (2005), While We Were Holding It Together (2006), Playing Ensemble Again And Again (2008), Working Titles (2010), 60 Minutes of Opportunism (20 10), Partituur (2011), In Common(2012), We are Still Watching  (2012-2015), Positions (2013) – have been produced and presented in some of the major theatre festivals and venues in Europe, USA and Asia , over the last 12 years.Her work has been occasionally shown in visual art contexts (Venice Bienalle 2015, amongst others). In her practice she has collaborates and colleborated with artists and theoreticians such as Bojana Kunst, David Weber Krebs, Andrea Bozic, Jonas Rutgeerts, Jefta van Dinther, Bill Aitchison, Paz Rojo, Sarah van Lamsweerde, Christine de Smedt and many others. In 2007 Müller received the Charlotte Koehler Prize from the Prins Bernhard Fund (NL) for her oeuvre, described as “uncompromising theatre, scrutinizing many concepts and ideas that are usually taken for granted”, as well as the Impulse Festival & Goethe Institute Prize for her piece While We Were Holding It Together. That same year, the piece was also nominated for the Dutch VSCD prize for best performance of the year. Next to her artistic practice, Ivana Müller curates artistic and discursive encounters and lectured/lectures as a guest lecturer/professor (at, amongst others, Piet Zwart Institute Rotterdam, School For New Dance Development, Amsterdam, Institute For Applied Theatre Studies Giessen, Performance Studies – University of Hamburg etc.). Müller studied Comparative literature and French at the University of Zagreb, Choreography & dance at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in Amsterdam and Fine Arts at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. From 2004 till 2009 she was a founding member of artistic collaborative platform LISA (Amsterdam). Ivana Müller was born in Zagreb and grew up in Croatia and in Amsterdam.
