KroOt Juurak // KroOt
3 – 20 July at Ellen de Bruijne Projects
As part of the Sandberg Institute: A Festival of Choices Ellen de Bruijne Projects will present
* The venue Kr__t, normally used for presentation and production of work by Krõõt Juurak, is since December 4th 2012 renamed KroOt and consequently hosts work by other artists. The “renters” can reclaim parts or all of their work from KroOt in November 2013.
Let me tell you a lie.
i have mice inside me.
i can’t remember right now how it is true but i know it is.
i like cats.
the other day my teacher told me: do you understand anything at all? do you understand what I am doing here, do you have any idea what you are doing here?
i answered: no, i don’t.
do you know who i am?
i know, you are the program coordinator.
you coordinate the program.
and i am a student.
i’m not a good student. but i’m also not the worst one.
i have my ways.
“you’re sneaky” she said.
KRoOT JUURAK, born in Tallinn in 1981, is a choreographer and performer whose work (performances, presentations, texts, workshops, mood shifts) challenges fixed definitions of choreography and performance. So, while describing Juurak as a choreographer and performer is too limiting to adequately define her actual production, the comparison still offers an interesting proximity from which to view her production. She graduated from ArtEz, Arnhem, EDDC, dance and choreography in 2003 and is currently obtaining an MA in Fine Arts from Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam. She has presented her work in a variety of forms at venues including Mindaugas Triennial, Contemporary Art Center (CAC) (Villnius, 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.
