Matter of Matters Friday 15 September at 10pm, Saturday 16 September at 8pm As part of the Diver Festival, the CCA hosts dance and choreographer Andreus Mulokas for an intimate and intense performance, with a focus on the investigation of objects on stage.
Andrius Mulokas was born in Kaunas, Lithuania. After studying visual arts and architecture, Mulokas’s artistic interest shifted to space in relation to the moving body. He studied dance in Finland (North Karelia College), later moving to Amsterdam where he studied at the BA in Choreography programme (SNDO) at the Amsterdam School of the Arts (AHK). He recently collaborated as a performer with: Lea Moro (2017), Tino Sehgal (2015-16) , Doris Uhlich (2013-16), Florentina Holzinger (2014), Ann Liv Young (2011), and Deborah Hay (2010). His work is about the state of possession by movement, about relationships with objects, materials that become performers, about the labour of performance art and the expressive forms it takes.
