Martijn Dirk Joling (b.1991, The Netherlands) started off his career as a Dutch rapper, and discovered his love for dance through hip hop. After getting familiar with hiphop as rap and dance style, he switched his focus to contemporary dance/ performance art, studied creative & cultural performance at the Roc Amsterdam dance Academy, and graduated with a BA of Modern Theatre Dance from Amsterdam University of the Arts.


Martijn has worked as a dancer among others with Dance Company Nanine Linning /Theater Heidelberg, State Theatre Braunschweig, Bodytalk dance theatre and Dancelab Berlin.


As a young artist he’s influenced by his surroundings, and multiple backgrounds inspire him to interact with a variety of different media, including scenography, installations, film, live-music and poetry. In 2012 with the duet “Iris 2.0”, he received the third prize at the ADAE Dance and Performing Arts Choreography Competition in Madrid.
