Martijn Dirk Joling (b.1991, The Netherlands) started off his career as a Dutch rapper, and discovered his love for dance through hip hop. After getting familiar with hiphop as rap and dance style, he switched his focus to contemporary dance/ performance art, studied creative & cultural performance at the Roc Amsterdam dance Academy, and graduated with a BA of Modern Theatre Dance from Amsterdam University of the Arts.
Martijn has worked as a dancer among others with Dance Company Nanine Linning /Theater Heidelberg, State Theatre Braunschweig, Bodytalk dance theatre and Dancelab Berlin.
As a young artist he’s influenced by his surroundings, and multiple backgrounds inspire him to interact with a variety of different media, including scenography installations, film, music and poetry. In 2012 with the duet “Iris 2.0”, he received the third prize at the ADAE Dance and Performing Arts Choreography Competition in Madrid.
