Krõõt Juurak (EST/AT), born in Tallinn in 1981, is a choreographer and performer whose work (performances, presentations, texts, drawings, workshops, mood shifts) challenges fixed definitions of choreography and performance. She graduated from ArtEz, Arnhem, EDDC, dance and choreography in 2003 and MA Fine Arts from Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam in 2013. She has presented her work in a variety of forms at venues including Mindaugas Triennial, Contemporary Art Center (CAC) (Vilnius, 2012); ImPulsTanz Vienna (2012); de Appel Boys School (Amsterdam, 2012); CIAP Hasselt (Belgium, 2011); Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen (Innsbruck, 2010); Kunsthalle Wien project space Karlsplatz (Vienna, 2010); Tallinn Art Hall (2009); and deSingel (Antwerp, 2008); a.o.
Her work has been engaged in performative realities such as the disappearance of work time and leisure time, production and consumption, intention and chance. All these things lead directly to her works, which she then shows in the form of performances, presentations, moods, texts and workshops.
She has been devising creations since 2002. Most recently, she was a guest at brut together with Alex Bailey, showing performances for art-loving dogs and cats.
Over the past 11 years she has directed and performed "Look Look" (with Anne Juren), "Once Upon", "Burning Down the House" (with Laura Kalauz), "A Text is a List of Effects (with Ralo Mayer), "Ride the Wave Dude" (with Marten Spangberg), "Presentation", "The Place of the Grave", "Animal Show" (with Alex Bailey).
