Info

Uncreative dance:

The copy & paste button will become our new leitmotif. We will be taking on the present-day dictate of copying and moving from being an inventor to becoming a thief. Taken from the happy hunting grounds of the World Wide Web, every movement, every sound, every image will be a possible prey for us. From contemporary choreography to cheerleading, from the video game Fortnite to shampoo commercials, from viral dance moves to the globally marketed pose of Michelangelo’s David.

Biography

In his works Moritz Ostruschnjak dwells upon the transformations in physical and social  experiences in times of digitization and virtualization. His pieces are spaces made up of hyperlinks which utilize the media-machinery of the 21st century. Following the principle of pick & mix and cut & paste, highly heterogeneous elements and connections form the narrative of a reality in which the boundaries between politics, entertainment and populism become increasingly indistinct. As an active member of the graffiti sprayer scene, Ostruschnjak developed his interest in contemporary dance through breakdancing. He studied at Iwanson International in Munich and completed his training with Maurice Béjart in Lausanne. Since 2013 he has been working as a freelance choreographer and created the solo “Island of Only Oneland” as well as the ensemble pieces “Text Neck”, “BOIDS”, “UNSTERN” and “AUTOPLAY”. His production “YESTER:NOW” (2021) premiered in Munich’s largest concert hall, the Philharmonic Hall in the Gasteig, and in 2022 he realized “TERMINAL BEACH” at Utopia Munich. His works have been performed at many European festivals, the production “UNSTERN” was selected for the TANZPLATTFORM DEUTSCHLAND 2020 and his solo TANZANWEISUNGEN for TANZPLATTFORM DEUTSCHLAND 2022. He was one of the Aerowaves Twenty21 Artists and in 2020 received the Promotion Award Dance of the City of Munich. In 2022 he received the three-year grant from the Department of Arts and Culture of the City of Munich and the three-year conceptual funding of the Fonds Darstellende Künste. Moritz Ostruschnjak is a member of Tanztendenz München e.V. and has been supported by the network Grand Luxe 2019/2020.
