Jordi Ribot Thunnissen

As a multi-faceted dance-professional, Jordi feels hooked to this artform in many ways. Born in the Netherlands but raised in Catalonia, he studied journalism (BA), choreography (BA) and theatre studies (MA) in Barcelona before moving to Amsterdam in 2014. Still active as a performer and as a dramaturgical advisor for choreographers, he currently focuses on thinking, writing and talking about dance. He teaches dance history at ArteZ School for the Arts in Arnhem, is currently engaged in a PhD research on the poetics of Dutch choreographer Hans van Manen, and contributes to Springback Magazine and Movement Exposed Critical Space as a freelance critic. As a lecturer, he has provided introductions to dance performances and conferences on dance theory for El Mercat de les Flors de Barcelona, Internationaal Theater Amsterdam, Choreolab Europe and others.
