Ruben is a British dancer from the East Midlands. He trained at London Contemporary Dance School before entering the professional field in 2017. He kickstarted his career in Requardt & Rosenberg’s ‘Dead Club’ in London, swiftly followed by Compagnie Thor in the beginning of 2018. In the last year he has worked on various projects in London, South Korea and Los Angeles. “Dance for me is all about the people I work with! It’s through dance I’ve met some of the most interesting and talented artists I’m proud to call my friends. I cherish this aspect of my art form. In terms of what interests me, it’s the bodies expressive capabilities and power to create catharsis between performer and audience.” Cover photo Camilla Greenwell
Since the setting-up of his company in 1990, Thierry Smits has created over thirty dance performances. Among them Eros délétère (1991), Red Rubber Balls (1999), D'ORIENT (2005), V.-Nightmares (2007) and To the Ones I Love (2010). His creations oscillate between sober contemporary lines on the one hand, and pop, queer and often provocative aesthetics on the other hand. Thor‘s performances constantly bear witness of a high technical rigour and gestural inventiveness, of an undisputable frankness and generosity.
