In 2017 Janire Etxabe founded Dimegaz with the objective of making and spreading artistic performances in natural spaces across the Basque Country. They merge vertical dance and art with the memory and popular culture of the spaces where it takes place, taking nature as the basis of movement.
In 2020 she created the company Harrobi Dantza Bertikala in Dima (Biscay, the Basque Country) with the intention of spreading worldwide the works she performs in nature.
Apart from the artistic activity and with the objective of reaching different audiences through vertical dance and sensitizing them by means of Basque culture, in 2021 she launched the initiative Dingilizke. This project’s goal is to make vertical dance public and offer the opportunity to train oneself in this discipline.
At the same time, they keep making and researching various interventions in nature and representative urban spaces throughout the Basque Country.
Currently she is working on her first documentary Haize Lerroak, it will be released in 2024.
