Maria Metsalu (1990) is an Estonian choreographer and performer, who finished SNDO (School for New Dance Development) in Amsterdam in 2016. She creates mainly solo works with an ongoing interest in the production of her own persona, self-mythologisation of it and her own autopoiesis. Exploring physical and virtual realities, bringing them together, understanding the differences of those two in terms of interaction, social exchange and transformation are important aspects of her research process. She aims to articulate relations between visual culture, identity, appropriation, telepresence and voyeurism using self referential relationships with corporate technologies.
She received the DanceWEB scholarship in ImpulsTanz Vienna in year 2014.
Amongst others Maria Metsalu has worked together and performed for with Nils Amadeus Lange, Tino Sehgal, Vincent Riebeek, Fernando Belfiore, Antonio Maia, Gertjan Franciscus and Manuel Scheiwiller. She is one of the founders of international loose performance collective Young Boy Dancing Group.
