Cassiel Gaube is a dancer and choreographer who graduated from P.A.R.T.S, the school created by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. He is currently developing his work at the intersection of contemporary dance and Hip hop and Clubbing dances.
In Soirée d'études, Cassiel Gaube expands the research set out in his solo Farmer Train Swirl - Étude and creates a trio exploring the rich vocabulary of House Dance in a series of études.
An étude, in the musical sense of the word, is a composition designed as an occasion to explore the possibilities of a particular technique and to experiment with these, which is similar to the way House Dance is practiced. Drawing from commonly known moves, the dancer looks for variations of these steps and for inventive ways of articulating them together. This common knowledge allows people to read each other's dancing.
Together with Yonas Perou, a Paris-based dancer experienced in Street dance, and Federica Miani, Cassiel seeks to reveal the literacy that this practice requires and produces.
Cassiel Gaube is associated artist to La Ménagerie de Verre, in Paris, where Soirée d’études will premiere on 19 November 2020, in collaboration with the Festival Les Inaccoutumés.
