Salva Sanchis (Catalonia, 1974) moved to Belgium in 1995 to study at P.A.R.T.S., where he graduated among the first generation of students of the school. There he created several solos and group pieces. Since his graduation project Less than a moment (1998), he has produced over twenty full evening pieces, developing a body of work that is characterised by the dialogue between improvisation and set vocabulary, often with an outspoken link to music. His latest creation, which is currently on tour across Europe, is Radical Light (2016), a piece for five dancers.
In 2003 Salva joined Rosas as a freelance dancer for the production Bitches Brew / Tacoma Narrows. This led to a choreographic collaboration with Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker that resulted in the projects Desh (2004) and A Love Supreme (2005), co-signed by both choreographers.
Over the past 18 years, and concurrent with his work as a choreographer, Salva Sanchis has developed an educational trajectory teaching regularly at several dance schools in Europe.
