Benno Voorham is an acclaimed international teacher of Contact Improvisation and Compositional Improvisation. In both his teaching and performance work, he is interested in exploring the creative and narrative potentials of the human body.


Since his first teaching in 1985, Benno has taught workshops to both students at different dance and theatre academies and universities, professional dancers and a wide variety of groups of non-professionals worldwide in over 35 countries.


Having danced Contact Improvisation since 1981, I keep renewing my interest in this form and specifically in relation to my performance work. It has given me a strong basis to come in a physical and emotional dialogue with others. In my work as a dance maker and improviser I am interested to explore different crossroads between dance and physical theatre.
