Korzo, one of the creative partners in DANSLOKAAL, selected choreographer Zino Schat in 2022 for the 10th edition of this talent development project, which resulted in the short dance performance SOMA for 4 dancers. Zino will give a workshop on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March 2023 at Huis Conny Janssen Danst.
Zino Ainsley Schat was born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. With his former group SkillDealers he performed in the streets all over the world and after his experiences as a street performer he choreographed/danced showcases for Queen Máxima and Obama, among others. His theater career started as a performer with dance company AYA and Solid Ground Movement and later in his career he developed a deeper interest in choreography. This led him to collaborate with De Nationale Opera and the Dutch Blazers ensemble.
Schat, founder and artistic director of Fractal, is a choreographer interested in merging contemporary and urban dance. Korzo supports Fractal in a 4-year maker trajectory.
