Ivana Müller is a choreographer, artist and author of texts. Through her choreographic and theatre works, 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.
In her pieces she often creates states of “possible” inviting the spectators to collectively or individually engage in the experience of imagining, and in such a way re-invent that “possible” over and over again.
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 (2010), Partituur (2011), In Common (2012), We Are Still Watching (2012), Positions (2013), Edges (2016), Conversations Out of Place (2017), Forces of Nature (2021) and Fäden (2021) - have been produced and presented at some of the major theatre festivals and venues in Europe, USA and Asia. Her work has been occasionally presented in visual art contexts. Ivana Müller was born in Zagreb and grew up in Croatia and in Amsterdam. She lives in Paris and works internationally.
