Michiel Vandevelde (Belgium, 1990) began his dance career at an early age with the Leuven-based company fABULEUS. Since graduating from P.A.R.T.S. in 2012 he has been building up his own practice as a choreographer, curator and writer. A political and artistic activism is the common thread running through his work. He is a member of the Bâtard festival’s artistic team and of Etcetera’s editorial team. Michiel has previously appeared at Kaaitheater with Antithesis. The future of the image (2015), Our Times (2016), Andrade (2017) and Paradise Now (1968-2018) (2018).
From 2017 to 2021 Michiel Vandevelde is an artist in residence at Kaaitheater.
