Jan Martens

His work is nurtured by the belief that each body can communicate, that each body has something to say. In each work he tries to redraw the relation between the public and the performer.
Jan Martens won the Charlotte Köhler Prize in 2015, he is creative associate at deSingel (Belgium) and at CDCN in Roubaix with support from the ministry of Culture.
In 2014 Jan Martens founded, together with business manager Klaartje Oerlemans, the choreographic platform GRIP in Antwerp / Rotterdam, from where they jointly produce and distribute his work as well as support the work of Bára Sigfúsdóttir, Steven Michel and Michele Rizzo.
