MICHIEL VANDEVELDEPRINT THIS PAGE
Michiel Vandevelde started dancing at the youth theatre and dance company fABULEUS. He completed his degree in dance/choreography at P.A.R.T.S. in 2012.
His work consists of actions in the public space, performance and building different kinds of structures. In his early work he often collaborated with Menno Vandevelde and Jozef Wouters. In 2010 he showed "Creatie 2010 (musicpiece)" at Theater Aan Zee. He then developed "Tentproject (a space for ideas)", a project based on the quest for alternative political, economic and social structures. This quest went on to form the base for his next works: "Stageproject (a space for ideas and action)" (2012), "Walking piece" (2012) and "Love songs (veldeke)"" (2013). Since 2012 he has been working on founding a new political party named "The political party", developed within the frame of 'De stadsresidenten' initiated by the arts centre Vooruit in Ghent. In 2013 he became part of the artistic team of the Bâtard festival. Currently Michiel is preparing "Antithesis (the future of the image)" which will première in March 2015 at Vooruit, Ghent.
