Dancer and choreographer based in Brussels, Cassiel Gaube is currently developing his work at the crossroads of contemporary dance, hip hop and clubbing moves.
Graduating in 2016 from P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels, Cassiel Gaube is a dancer and choreographer. As a performer, he collaborated with choreographers Manon Santkin & Benjamin Vandewalle, as well as with multidisciplinary artist Fabrice Samyn.
Over the past 3 years, Gaube has mainly dedicated himself to learning and practising House dance, in Paris and New York’s lively club scenes. He is currently developing his work at the crossroads of contemporary dance, hip hop and clubbing moves. Through this undertaking he sensitively navigates these buoyant ecosystems of practice, experimenting with patterns and shapes which inhabit them and imagining new ones.
In 2019, Cassiel created the solo Farmer Train Swirl – Étude, an embodied and subjective investigation of the field of House dance. Since then it has been shown in theatre and museum spaces, as well as in the context of clubs.
As a consequence of his first piece, Gaube has been invited to work with several other artists. Together with Brussels & Berlin based record label Ensemble, he is currently designing the club version of the solo, which will tour in House clubs across Europe.
Gaube was asked by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker to create some material for her Broadway stage version of West Side Story, made in collaboration with Ivo Van Hove.
He was an associate artist at La Ménagerie de Verre, in Paris, in 2019 & 2020. In 2021, he presented his creation Soirée d’études, a piece which prolongs and expands the research started in the solo.
As a teacher, Gaube is regularly invited to give professional training sessions and workshops, in dance studios such as DansCentrumJette, La Raffinerie – Charleroi Danse, P.A.R.T.S. SummerSchool in Brussels and La Ménagerie de Verre in Paris.
