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 studied music from her early childhood on and then arts and design at the ABKM Academy of Fine Arts Maastricht, at 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, where she broadened her knowledge in contemporary and modern dance during a three-year course of study. 
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 part of the DOCK11 and Eden***** Studios - Family in Berlin, teaching dance. In 2019, she has founded the dance collective EMBODIED.TWO with dancer Justin Tempel and is part of the music duo Agendakultur.
