Ivana Müller is a Croatian choreographer, artist and author who is living in Paris and works internationally.
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 the performer and the spectator. Since 2002 she has created about fifteen plays and dances that have been performed in Europe, the United States and Asia. In 2007 she received the Charlotte Koehler Award for all of her work, as well as the Impulse Festival and Goethe Institute Award for her play While We Were Holding It Together. Her experimental, radical and formally innovative work expresses the idea of movement and the body, being at the heart of her artistic preoccupations. The theater remains her main place of practice and creation. Yet Ivana Müller's work has often been presented in the context of contemporary art, among others at the Venice Biennale 2015, the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art (Moscow), Hayward Gallery / Southbank Center.
