Benjamin Vandewalle (Belgium, 1983) graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in 2006. Since early on, the central theme in his work is perception. He creates movement – not only in the performer’s body but also in the spectator’s. His work is about sharing new experiences and perspectives with a large audience.
In 2012, he entered the limelight and impressed critics and the public alike with on-location performances like 'Birdwatching' and 'Walking the Line'. From 2017 until 2021, he is the artist-in-residence at the reputable Kaaitheater. With Common Ground, Benjamin harks back to the dansante character of his earlier productions.
