He started Kahbam in 2013. He has a background in improv piano (since 1991) and theatre (Founder of theatregroup Theatregroup Vreemdwild in 2009 and member of Prodeo at the University of Twente and Roest for 5 years since 2004).  He organized theatre performances (VreemdWild) with students from the Art Academy AKI/  ArtEZ Academie.

Through play, people get connected and learn the most effective way through personal experiences.


Later on he went to several Vipassana meditation retraites to learn more about mindfulness.
To realize that having less stuff is making life more flexible, he experienced a nomadic life by building a covered wagon behind a horse and travelled.

After that project he went on backpacking, hitchhiking and couchsurfing.
During experiences abroad he discovered contact improvisation.
He enjoys bringing people together as they show their authentic selfs in the dance.
CI shows benefits applicable to his daily life, like being mindful in the changes and to make a deeper connection with life itself.
He also practices Aikido since 2014 whichs benifits he finds are similar to CI.

Loby travelled and joined classes/ jamsessions/ festivals to discover more about Contact Improvisation in Hongkong ( Kongtact Square身隨意舞) , Budapest (SIN & Kontakt Budapest) ,  Berlin (k77), Krakow, Groningen (Random Collision), Amsterdam, Gottingen (Contact meets Contemporary)

He set up Kahbam to combine all the different perspectives of movements and disciplines in order to offer space to share experiences.
