Jim Buskens (NL, 1996) is a dancer/performer and theatremaker. In 2016, he received his propedeuse at Codarts in Rotterdam, after which he decided to continue his studies at The Institute of Performative Arts in Maastricht (Toneelacademie). Here, he received his bachelor from the Performance department in july 2021 and was invited to join the new-makers trajectory, One Night´s Dance, at our own home.
He is currently working as a dancer in the international tour of the newest work by Jan Martens: Any attempt will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones. Jim creates work in which the moving body is always the starting point. Bodies never lie, therefore his work and classes are an attempt to be as real and vulnerable as possible.
