Choreographic 0 is the inaugural event in a new series of productions in Art Research around the choreographic, and it gives us great pleasure to welcome Mårten Spångberg for an in-conversation outlining his notion of choreography, its relation to dance and other modes of cultural practice, as well as its broader political and economic horizons.

Mårten Spångberg is a choreographer living and working in Stockholm. Spångberg has been active on stage as performer and creator since 1994 and has created his own choreographies since 1999. His pieces have toured internationally. His interests concern choreography in an expanded field, something that he has approached through experimental practices and creative processes in a multiplicity of formats and expressions. Spångberg has thorough experience in teaching both theory and practice and he acted as the director of the MA programme in choreography at the University of Dance and Circus in Stockholm from 2008 to 2012. His first book Spangbergianism was published in 2011.
