Ian Kaler is a choreographer and performer in the context of contemporary dance and an image producer and film maker.

He studied Transmedial Art at the Unversity of Applied Arts, Vienna and graduated from the BA Pilotprogramm Contemporary Dance, Context, Choreography at the Inter-University Center for Dance, at the University of Arts, Berlin.

Based on his experience of working with bodies in motion he continues to develop his practice towards exploring narrative and storytelling also via video/moving image and text/speech/voice-over. He’s interested in auto-fiction as a practice of writing and developing fictional characters and narratives based on personal or biographical experience.

Some of the core-themes his work addresses center embodiment and coming of age through a trans masculine lens, the figurative composition of the still and moving body, the relationship between bodies and the space/s they inhabit, horses and other sentient beings and encounters with them.
