Robin Berkelmans (1976) followed the dance teacher department at the Dance Academy in Tilburg. He left this unfinished and chose after two years to follow his own path. He is a dancer, physical performer, dance and movement teacher and maker of dance and theatre. His work and style are rooted in his experience and practice of contemporary dance, site-specific and physical theatre, dance theatre, improvisation, tai chi chuan, aikido, somatics, juggling, Latin American dance and capoeira.
He is one of the founding members of physical theatre collective Zure Room, which was one of the Nieuwkomers of Orkater in 2009. Robin has been connected as a teacher of contemporary dance at the Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten since 2008.
