Eva Leemans is a contemporary dance artist from Belgium, based in Berlin.
She's interested in the body as an expressive medium, bridging internal and external realities, and movement research as an investigation of possibilities, relations and connectivity.
She has developed a persistent curiosity for movement, which encourages her to continuously deepen her understanding by studying different practices.
In the last couple of years she has developed interest for a variety of contemporary dance and improvisation practices, yoga, martial arts and acrobatics among others, all of which find their way into her movement practice.
As a teacher she has translated these interests into an improvisation-based practice under the name
These topics further come to expression in her creative explorations, and have led to the creation of her first solowork (2019), which she performed at several festivals in and around Berlin.
Eva started her contemporary dance education in Belgium under guidance of Nicole Köhler which gave her the opportunity to perform multiple contemporary dance pieces in different theaters around Ghent as part of cie. Lilith.
She later earned her Bachelors degree at Northern School for Contemporary Dance in Leeds, where she continued her dance studies.
After graduating she's been performing contemporary dance and dance theater pieces in Germany and the UK, working and collaborating with Excessive Human Collective, SHOAL, Larissa Trio, Kerem Shemi and Matina Kaiafa to name a few.
As a teacher Eva has taught flow classes, contemporary dance, yoga and improvisation for Movision Movement, Studio 58, marameo, yoga sky, Urbanraum, DOCK 11, Fachhochschule Clara Hoffbauer, yoga tribe, YALP, Yogalila, Urban Gladiators, Fabrik Potsdam and Open Source Arts (UK).
