Eva Leemans is a contemporary dance artist from Belgium, based in Berlin.

She's interested in exploring the poetics of physical states and movement qualities that arise in the bodies of our modern society (my own as well as others), by tuning into the detailed experience of what it means to be present, in order to reflect on what is by framing different realities, promoting the act of seeing-with-clarity to allow for social change and a transformation towards collective authenticity.

She has developed a persistent curiosity for movement, which encourages her to continuously deepen her understanding of the body 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.

Questions about societal structures and individual authenticity come to expression in her creative explorations, and have led to the creation of soloworks Reality Check (2019) and The rules of the game (2022) as well as collaborations Placing, marking, dancing (2019), One T(w)o One (2019) and Greater than the Sum (2021).


Eva started her contemporary dance education in Belgium and later earned her Bachelors degree at Northern School for Contemporary Dance in Leeds, where she continued her dance studies.

After graduating she's been working as a performer, maker and teacher in Europe and the UK. She's part of Excessive Human Collective, with whom she performed WOMEN (2020), Post Truth Whatever (2022) and Discopia (2023) by Imogen Reeve. She further worked with Kerem Shemi, Julek Kreutzer, Felix Matthias Ott, Marula Bröckerhoff, Greta Schüster, Matina Kaiafa, Valentina Menz Nash and others.

As a teacher Eva has taught at Fachhochschule Clara Hoffbauer and Seneca Intensive, as well as Urbanraum, DOCK11, Tanzfabrik and Marameo.  She currently teaches yoga at Green Yoga and movement classes for Bewegungskollektiv Berlin.
