Jasper van Luijk

Jasper van Luijk (1987) is one of The Netherlands great choreographic talents. Hij studied dance at the ArtEZ Dance Academy, and when he was only 24 years old he was selected by Korzo to show his first piece in Voorjaarsontwaken 2011. This resulted in Too many new beginnings, which was very well received.

In 2012 Jasper received the ITs Choreography Award, a price for graduating talent in choreography. After his graduation, he decided to focus on choreography full-time. Since then he worked continuously at many Dutch dance houses, festivals and companies such as Conny Janssen Danst, Oerol, Festival a/d Werf, Cadance and Holland Dance Festival and Moving Futures. In 2016 he was nominated for the award of the Nederlandse Dansdagen as an emerging choreographer. 

At the moment Jasper is supported by De Nieuwe Oost Arnhem, Het Huis Utrecht, MAAS Theater & Dance in Rotterdam en Korzo Producties in The Hague. Highlights from the past year are the solo performances Yonder and The Definition of Now. Movements generated by society are a central theme in Jasper’s work. He also places great emphasis on performing ‘in the moment’; the creation of situations on stage where the performers make decisions on-the-spot with which they can influence and surprise both themselves and the audience. For this he regularly opens his studio in his creation process for the audience and invites them to join the conversation. In 2016 he established his own organisation SHIFFT in Utrecht, together with business producer Lisa Donia .
