Cassiel Gaube

°1994, Belgium, lives and works in Brussels and Paris.

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 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 3 years, 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 and 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.

Cassiel recently created the solo Farmer Train Swirl - Étude, an embodied and subjective investigation of the field of House dance. The piece premiered during the End of Winter Festival at Kunstencentrum BUDA (Kortrijk) in February 2019. It has since then been shown in theater and museum spaces, as well as in club situations. He's currently developing a collaboration with the Brussels & Berlin based record label Ensemble.

He is artist-in-residence in 2019 at La Ménagerie de Verre in Paris. He is currently creating a new work, entitled Soirée d'études, which will prolong and expand the research started in the solo.

As a teacher, Cassiel is regularly invited to give professional trainings and workshops, in dance studios such as DansCentrumJette, La Raffinerie, P.A.R.T.S. SummerSchool in Brussels and La Ménagerie de Verre in Paris.
