Robert Jan Liethoff

Robert Jan Liethoff is a Berlin based actor, dramaturgy and voice movement teacher. Since 2005 he has expanded his studies and work in the field of dance and choreography with intensive projects in Berlin, Amsterdam and Mexico City. His work draws on the aspects of voice physiology as a departure point for the development of sound-oriented bodywork. He is fascinated by the body’s own intelligence: his compositions often begin from the concept of emptiness, or formless state, from where they begin to move towards clearer forms and structures within the context and textures of the body.Using an interdisciplinary approach to the voice he has been teaching and working with classical singers, choirs, bands, actors and performers in the Netherlands, Germany and Mexico over the past few years. He is currently collaborating with DJ’s and sound composers in Berlin and Amsterdam brainstorming new modalities of listening and composing electronic music through an acoustic experience of the body.
