Mårten Spångberg (b. 1968) is a multidisciplinary choreographer and writer living and working in Berlin and Stockholm. His interest concerns dance and choreography in an expanded field, something he has approached through experimental practice in a multiplicity of formats and expressions.
He has been active on stage as a performer and creator since 1994, and since 1999 has created his own choreographies, from solos to larger scale works, which have toured internationally. Under the label International Festival, Spångberg collaborated with the architect Tor Lindstrand and engaged in social and expanded choreography.
Spångberg has thorough experience in curating as well as teaching, both practice and theory. From 2008 - 2012 he directed the MA program My Choreography at the University of Dance in Stockholm, and he has been guest professor in the university Giessen as well as The National Academy of The Art, Oslo. He has been published extensively and his first book Spangbergianism was published in 2011.
His more recent performances La Substance, but in English, The Internet, Natten and Gerhard Richter, une pièce pour le théâtre has gained extensive international recognition. His current work concerns ecology and post-anthropocene aesthetics.
