While standing live and alone on stage Ivana Müller reflects on the act of performing, on being public and being “live”, using her own body and her presence as a canvas onto which spectators project their expectations..

Taking the opportunity that the time on stage can offer her, in 60 Minutes of Opportunism Müller constructs a network of thoughts and reflections on her position as an artist, her condition of being watched, her tools and strategies of “re-creating” herself here and now on stage. 60 Minutes Of Opportunism focuses spectator’s gaze on a body that is present yet vulnerable, uncertain and “unfinished”, the body that changes statuses from being physical, symbolic, political, entertaining and potentially dangerous.

In 60 Minutes Of Opportunism Müller examines ways we watch: one-selves, each other’s, and the “others”, tackling, often with humour, the conventions that we live by.
