Tian Rotteveel (1984) studied music composition at the Royal Conservatory of Holland and currently studying choreography and dance at HZT in Berlin where he commits to the practice of movement, sound and language as one intertwined practice. Sound and movement in his work are processes what can materialize into meaning but also in just sheer sensation, opening undefined spaces. The work Soulsqueezing (2011) has toured extensively and has been presented internationally over more then 10 countries in Europe. Tian has been working with MAE- Chamber Ensemble, Rosa Ensemble, David Hernandez, Igor Dobricic, Diego Gil, Lea Martini, David Zambrano, Jeremy Wade, Tino Sehgal, Michael Schumacher, Liat Waysbort, and others. And have been teaching voice movement research workshops to SEAD dance academy, Meg Stuarts/Damaged Goods, Dampfzentrale Bern, Antistatic Festival Sofia, Plezna Izba Maribor Slovenia and others.
