Evangelos Biskas (Thessaloniki/Greece, 1994) is a dancer and choreographer with a main interest in the interdisciplinarity between dance, theatre, music and visual arts. He graduated from the department of dance and choreography at Fontys Hogeschool voor de Kunsten (FHK) in Tilburg, Netherlands (2016) and was nominated by the academy’s award ‘Jacques de Leeuw prijs 2016’.
With his graduation work ’Eternal Chilling’ (2016) he won the ‘Moving Forward-Young Dance Makers Award 2016’, which made his work more visible in the Netherlands. The last work ‘In Search of a Title’ (2017) is an interdisciplinary performance co-created with choreographer Elysia McMullen in collaboration with musicians Ruben den Brok and Isaac Poels and light designer Raoul Baeten. Since 2017 he is one of the new makers of PLAN-Brabant; a collective of dance houses, theatres and festivals supporting upcoming artists.
Next to his own work as a maker, Evangelos also performs as a dancer in theatres and site-specific locations. He is currently performing in the dance production ’Even Worse’ by Guilherme Miotto- Corpo Maquina (2017) and in the interdisciplinary play ’Loophole’ by Charlotte Goesaert (2017). Some of his previous performances include the works ‘This is not a Sad Song’ by United Cowboys (2016), ‘EV’ by Fernando Belfiore (2016) and ‘iTernal PlayGround’ by Katja Heitmann (2014).
