Jan Doms started in 1978 with dance experiments (among others King’s Dress) in collaboration with the Israeli dancer Rina Schenfeld in the dance studios of the National Ballet, stimulated by Rudy van Dantzig and Hans van Manen.
In 1980 he made the first dance (-improvisaties) for small theaters, such as 10:50 M1 Steel counter 8,28 m2 steel, followed in 1981 with Double Whip. This led in 1988 to the founding of De Maatschap int.
In 1990 he created the dance Bucket for the first Tilburg Dance Night at Theaters Tilburg, also shown in the Stedelijk Museum Roermond and in the Exhibition Forum BBK Düsseldorf (1992). He continued with the dance Tocht over de Styx – opening KORZO Theater The Hague.
Specially for the Exhibition Forum BBK Dusseldorf Jan Doms developed in 1992 the first German speaking dance: Judaskuss, which was also performed at the Stedelijk Museum Roermond and Stadtmuseum Meissen – Franziskanerklosterkirche.
