Hello! I’m Jordi.
I’m a Catalan/Dutch Dance-professional based in Amsterdam.
“El Balandre” gathers my professional dimensions under one name and one website.
I love putting my mind and/or body at the service of ideas/projects that go beyond my own. I feed on it, working with others broadens my perspective.
So if you think I can contribute to your (dance)project, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Mail works best 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
Here you’ll find the articles and reviews I publish for different media and dance-venues, or just for my own fun.
They can be in English, Spanish, Catalan and Dutch, so please use the tags or the search box to find the ones in your language.
I write, among others, for El Mercat de les Flors in Barcelona, Springback Magazine, and Los Teatros del Canal in Madrid.
One of the things I like doing the most is talking about dance.
I’m always trying to invite people to open up to any experience dance can propose, owning their view and their role as spectators.
As a lecturer, I introduce performances and take part in other side-activities for audience angagement, in collaboration with venues and dance-festivals around Europe.
For example: Julidans Festival, Aerowaves, El Mercat de les Flors, ExplicaDansa, Sismògraf Olot, Choreolab Europe, International Theatre Amsterdam.
Finally, here you’ll find my portfolio: All the projects I have been an active part of in one way or another: as a performer, a choreographer, or a dance dramaturg.
