Yoko Haveman


Yoko Haveman (Brazilian/Japanese, 1994) is a Dutch interdisciplinary dance artist, creator, photographer, and director, with a background in martial arts, modern dance and music. As a creator, Haveman choreographed a short fiction dance film in 2023 called Paradise Lost by Jordy Tempelman, and directed a full-length music and dance concert called ‘Solastalgia’ with and for the eccentric indie band LUKA. Topics that inspire Haveman’s work include human behavior, philosophy, and cinematography. She shapes it with connection, absurdity, and an interest in the transient ways of life, translated to stage and film. Furthermore, Yoko has been nominated for the Young Swan Award for the most impressive dance performance by the Association of Theater and Concert Hall Directors (VSCD), in 2022.
