BIRKE VAN MAARTENS
Dancer | Choreographer | Musician | Composer
Dance has no boundaries and no real home apart from the body it moves in, and the audience's interpretation of it.
The Artistic Career
Always following an interdisciplinary approach, Birke van Maartens first studied art and design at the ABKM Academy of fine Arts Maastricht, and music at the Maastricht Conservatory of the Dutch State University Hogeschool ZUYD. She then completed the Program Dance Pedagogical Competence of the educational institution SENECA Intensiv in Berlin and attended the Danceworks Academy for Contemporary Dance Berlin, Germany, there she broadened her knowledge in contemporary and modern dance during a three-year course of study, with a special focus on choreography/composition.
Since then she has been working as an artist in the performing arts - dance, choreography and music. As a co-founder of the Chigal Collective, she has been one of the organizers of the annual cultural Chigal Festival since 2017 - performing, designing stage sets, and giving workshops. Since 2018 she is a resident at the DOCK11 and Eden***** Studios Berlin, teaching contemporary dance. At the beginning of 2019, she has founded the dance collective EMBODIED.TWO with dancer Justin Tempel and is part of the music duo Agendakultur.
