Cassiel spent the last years exploring the vibrant House dance scene. In his solo Farmer Train Swirl- étude he seeks to open up a choreographic space in which the somatic skill of walking is brought into dialogue with the rich stepping lexicon of House dance and, through this interplay, reinvented.
Walking is one of our fundamental ways of relating to the world, deeply engrained in our neuro-motor system. In Farmer Train Swirl - étude, locomotion is conveyed as the empathic medium between the spectator's and the performer's body. The walk progressively transforms itself into complex and musical feet constellations, revealing the vast step vocabulary of House dance.
