Thomas J. Jelinek - 5767689.1 

Created various video and space installations, postdramatic theatre,

music/performances and has also worked in television productions,

architectural projects and as a curator. In this context

he realized a number of east-west connecting transdisciplinary art projects.

One focus of his artistic work is on space and preception, resulting in installations

of contextual spaces and conceptional communication scopes.

Thus interventions in public space and production of discourse zones as theatrical processes

as well as stage-rooms and light concepts for theatre and art spaces

are part of his practical work. In this context he also realized a number of stage-spaces

and light concepts for theatre, danceprojects and performance.

As a stage director he has realized various performance, opera and theatre projects in public

and theatrical areas in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands and France

and several other countries. He works as a dramaturgue for various dance productions

and was joint founder and leader of MESSING network.

From 2000-2008 he was chairman of IG Kultur Vienna (association of independent artists

and cultural organisations/Vienna), founder of NOMAD theatre (2000)

and the LABfactory (2003 in Vienna), where he is artistic director.

He is Co-Founder and member of Liquid Loft.

He has been teaching in specific transdisciplinary settings as for example

as guest professor at the Achademy of fine Arts Vienna or Willem de Kooning Academy

(Rotterdam/NL), in 2006/2007.
