Cassiel Gaube is a dancer and choreographer who graduated in 2016 from the Performing Arts, Research and Training Studios (P.A.R.T.S.) in Brussels. As a performer, he collaborated with choreographer Benjamin Vandewalle for his creations Walking the Line and Framing the Circle, as well as with visual artist Fabrice Samyn and choreographer Manon Santkin for the performance A Breath Cycle. In 2017, he is granted the Belgian VOCATIO fund to enable him to develop his own work as a choreographer.
Over the past 2 years and a half, Cassiel mainly dedicated himself to learning and practicing House dance, in Paris’ and New York’s lively club scenes. He is currently developing his work at the intersection of contemporary dance and Hip hop & Clubbing dances. He sees this undertaking as the work of sensibly navigating these buoyant ecosystems of practices, of experimenting with the forms which inhabit them and of imagining new ones.
He is currently developing his work at the intersection of contemporary dance and Hip Hop and Clubbing dances. Particularly, he delves in the practice of House dance: seeking to deeply understand the principles that constitute this technique, diffract its complex footwork and uncover its potential interplay with the action of walking.
He has been invited to be Artiste Associé at La Ménagerie de Verre in Paris for the year 2019 - 2020. In the meantime Cassiel is also preparing for a new work: Soirée d’études. This work will expand and deepen the research of his solo Farmer Train Swirl - étude. For both projects he’s working with the production and management company Hiros.
As a teacher, Cassiel is regularly invited to give professional trainings and workshops, in dance studios such as DansCentrumJette, La Raf nerie, P.A.R.T.S. SummerSchool in Brussels and La Ménagerie de Verre in Paris.
