In common

Ivana Müller's piece “In Common” is an ensemble piece. In a series of “social” choreographies, ten performers playfully develop various models of a commonly shared body. They are all on the same stage, speak the same language and are subjected to the same rules. In a sense, they find themselves in situations and are confronted with challenges that are known from discussions about democracy. What do we represent? How are we represented? These are the decisive questions within a surprising performance setting that has a social and political relevance.

Müller, Ivana

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 – among 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"  (2012-2015), "Positions" (2013), "Edges " (2016) – have been produced and presented in some of the major theatre festivals and venues in Europe, USA and Asia , over the last 12 years.


In her practice she has collaborated and colleborates 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, 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, Université Paris 8, 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  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. She lives in Paris and works internationally.

She is associate with the Ménagerie de Verre (Paris) in 2017.

If the 19th century is that of romanticism, the entry into the new century is synonymous of modernity! It was a few decades later that it would be assigned, a posteriori, the name of “neo-classical”.
