Born in Donostia (Spain), Iñaki’s initial approach to dance was Bask folk dance. His dance formation comprises Classical Ballet studies, Jazz and Modern & Contemporary dance. Iñaki studied composition as well as improvisation and lighting design at Nikolais/Louis school in New York. Winning the first prize in the VI Choreographic Contest of Madrid gave him the opportunity to create his first production “Diálogo de sordos”. For the past 20 years he has been involved in the work of Wim Vandekeybus and his company Ultima Vez in one way or another. Currently he combines the assistance to dance creations with his pedagogical engagement: he teaches workshops and gives dance lessons to professional dancers and in vocational dance schools. Within the pedagogical frame he has created the pieces: Cyclopes (Tokyo 2010), Jeffrey.1 (Copenhagen 2011), Blik Opener (Antwerp 2014), Turbador (Brussels 2016) and Miedo a volar (Quito 2017).
