Ian Yves Ancheta

Ian (1993, Philippines) is a Swedish maker and performer. His first encounter with dance was with New School Hip hop and this led to his great interest in detailed minimalism and movement musicality.

Ian graduated summer of 2019 from ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, Arnhem with a Bachelor of Dance degree. During his education he was introduced to various performance elements such as physical theatricality, humor and composition. These elements are central to his artistic exploration.

His interest in choreographic practices and his drive to create propel him to analyze and understand the relationship between personal preferences and natural capabilities (and limitations) and on how these two translate into choreography.

As a part of the company Conny Janssen Danst “Young Talent program 2018/19”, Ian was recently seen performing in the works of Ingrid Berger Myhre, Conny Janssen and Davide Bellota.
