Yann Marussich

"An Experience of Immobility"

In this presentation, Yann Marussich  will discuss his performance work and 
artistic experiments since 2000. Whilst giving a chronological overview of the 
development of his work, he will elaborate on the methodologies underpinning 
his projects. Taking dance and body art as a starting point, Marussich has 
developed a unique approach to performance making which is based on presenting 
the body in a way that combines an appearance of immobility with micro 

Yann Marussich is a Swiss contemporary dance practitioner and performance 
artist. Since 1989, his choreography and performances have been presented all 
over the world. In 2001, Yann choreographed Bleu Provisoire, his first totally 
motionless piece. Since then, his work has increasingly focused on 
introspection, exploring the control of stillness while placing his body in 
direct contact with diverse outside factors.
In 2008, his work Blue Remix was awarded a Prix Ars Electronica Award of 
Distinction, one of the most important prizes in the field of art and 
technology. During the 2010-11 season, Yann was an associate artist at the 
Grütli Theater and from 1993 to 2000, he was the director of the Théâtre de 
l’Usine in Geneva, where he created a program almost exclusively composed of 
contemporary dance and new forms of expression. Yann Marussich is supported by 
the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, and the City and Canton of Geneva.
