Martin Nachbar has studied in Amsterdam, New York and Brussels. Since 2000, he has created over 20 pieces, written several publications about his work and taught at institutions including the School for New Dance Development (SNDO), the Inter-University Centre for Dance Berlin (HZT), the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD), P.A.R.T.S. and the LABAN Dance Centre.
Martin Nachbar likes working together with other artists and always sees his practices in connection with his colleagues. These include dramaturge Jeroen Peeters, musician Boris Hauf, costume designer Marion Montel, light designers Wassan Ali and Bruno Pocheron and dancer-choreographers Ehud Darash, Noha Ramadan and Jochen Roller.
«For me, the feeling, moving, thinking body (that empathises on all three levels) is the vehicle of the work and the focus of productions, even when other media are involved. Choreography means harnessing the body for different practices and in different contexts with reference to an audience». (Martin Nachbar)
