Myrthe Bokelmann (1998, Netherlands) is a freelance dance maker and dance performer, currently based in Antwerp, Belgium.
She graduated from the Bachelor Dancer/Maker at ArtEZ University of the Arts in 2020, and continued their studies at the Master in Dance at Artesis Conservatory. Here they investigated the relations of the physical body to its environment and the other-than-human. Through this research Myrthe wanted to examine commonly perceived hierarchies in these relationships, and create space for the non-human entities of matter to become more actively contributing actors within performance.
Over the last two years Myrthe has started collaborations with two interdisciplinary collectives consisting of sound artists and visual artists. Their collaborative works have been shown in DeSingel Antwerp, Kavka Oudaan as part of STØND LEEG festival and Guterstoff Festival.
As a performer Myrthe has worked with Claudia Bosse, Ashley Ho & Domenik Naue, Eilit Marom and LeineRoebana amongst others.
