Jaskaran Anand (AT/IN)


Jaskaran Anand, born in New Delhi (India), is based in Linz since 2015. He is an internationally recognised performance artist who works as artistic director, dancer and choreographer, educator, initiator, producer and video dramaturge. He is co-founder, and the leading force of the Linz-based organisation trivium, which focuses on cultural intersectionality present in human bodies. He reforms his work together through the working of an entity Harmonical.Self, initiated in 2020. His work, interviews and discussions, have been presented at festivals, in institutions, online and outdoors in Austria, Slovenia, the USA, New Zealand and India. We/it/he explores the (de)construction and (un)networking in the mechanisms of reality formation for the self through collective working; interpreting data mapped through the “life” of a geopolitical human body seen as an intra-face acting in a dimension full of systems of interfaces. 

Anand’s recent works: In-between Privacy, Hibernating Further and MachinedHuman! deal with digitisation, ecological-psychological aspects of society, and the philosophy of posthumanism. In recent years, he has performed at festivals such as Imagetanz Festival/brut Wien, ImPulsTanz Vienna International Dance Festival, ARS Electronica Festival, Oriente Occidente Festival and Rome Europa Festival. Based on dance-theatre, meditation and art-education based practices, he leads and co-organises improvisation-based workshops and pedagogical projects conceptualized under moving energies and playfulness. Since 2012, he has been active in the European and Indian world of contemporary dance and performance Art, where he has worked as a performer/collaborator with Ivo Dimchev, Salvo Lombardo, Sandra Chatterjee, Liz King, and Opera de Lausanne.
