Benno Voorham is a performer, choreographer and teacher from Holland, living in Stockholm since 1995. Since his graduation in 1986 from the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam he has worked internationally as an independent dance-artist, directing his own work as well as collaborating with others in both set and improvised pieces. He was a member of the Greek dance-theatre company ‘Wrong Movement’ (1993-2007) and has worked as a dancer/actor at the City Theatre of Stockholm (2005–2007). He was a founding member of the international improvisation group ‘Alternating Currents’. In recent years he has choreographed several works for children and youth. In both his teaching and performance work, he is interested in exploring the creative, narrative potentials of the human body through movement. He has won a distinctive reputation for his original brand of teaching and performing. 

Benno has been a major force in introducing CI to many of the Eastern European countries. In both 1998 and 2002 he organized the ECITE conference (European Contact Improvisation Teachers Exchange) in Sweden together with Sybrig Dokter, with whom he founded LAVA- Dansproduktion in 1997.
