  • Born in 1984, Jan Martens studied at the Fontys Dance Academy in Tilburg in the Netherlands, and graduated in 2006 from the Artesis school of the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. Since 2010, he has been developing his own choreographic work, focusing on the singularity of bodies and of the stories they carry, bringing a fresh perspective to the relationship between performers and audience. The Festival d'Avignon first welcomed him in 2018 with his solo Ode to the attempt, and now with the group show any attempt will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones, which aims to offer something different from what can be seen on Europe's main stages.
