Originally hailing from Perth, Western Australia, Paul Blackman is one of the founding members of the Jukstapoz Company. Thrown, literally head first into the performing arts world by his acrobatic & circus trained mother, he has been on an international journey for more than a decade. Working with a plethora of highly regarded and renowned artists in the United Kingdom, Europe, United States and Australia, including Felicity Bott during her tenure as Artistic Director of Buzz Dance Theatre, Paul is now based in the heart of Athens, Greece. Paul has been awarded numerous times for his versatile performing and theatric abilities. Paul (as part of Jukstapoz) has been commissioned by Sadlers Wells, Athens Epidaurus Festival, Onassis Cultural Centre, Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts and others for his choreographic work. He teaches widely throughout the world in various dance academies, institutions and festivals. His fascination with how the human subconscious deals with good and evil is an integral part of his art form, devising ambitious and atmospheric dance theatre works that ignite and question the current and volatile world in which we are constantly observing.
