Tamar uses the power of music and dance to craft compelling stories and images for stage and screen.
Drawing from an extensive background in flamenco, she brings musicality and raw human expression to the center of her contemporary dance, to create work that touches the soul and connects across boundaries.


"Music and dance help me to make sense of complex emotions that I can't capture in words. They help me cope with life. 

I discovered early on that music and dance are a source of infinite wisdom and energy. Of course, people have known this for centuries. Crowds at concerts and festivals connect through it, children react to it, even people who have lost their words and memories still recognise it. It leads us to our intuition, where our body knows, where our soul is nourished.

For me, creating art is opening doorways to a marvellous universe that offers endless inspiration, wisdom, joy, consolation and courage to anyone looking for it."


From a very young age, Tamar finds comfort and joy in music and dance. It becomes the key inspiration throughout her life. 
She studies contemporary dance at the Amsterdam School for the Arts and after graduation, her interest in the relation between dance and music leads her to flamenco. This encounter is life changing: She moves to Seville, Spain, to study the art-form at the source. Over the next decade, she builds a life in Spain and her work as a flamenco dancer takes her all over the world. 

After years of being immersed in flamenco, she reconnects to her background in contemporary dance. She develops a method that uses her experience with flamenco to bring musicality and human expression to the center of contemporary dance. 

She shifts her focus to choreography and collaborates with dancers and companies to create work that celebrates the power of music, rhythm and movement as a source of inspiration, healing and connection. 

Her interest in film and photography strongly influences the way she designs and crafts her work, both for the stage and the screen.
