Benjamin Vandewalle (1983) attended the Royal Ballet School Antwerp and graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in 2006. After operating primarily ‘in the black box’ for nine years, Vandewalle felt the need to break out of the theatre’s comfort zone. He sought refuge in a research project on urban choreography.
In 2019, Vandewalle toured Europe with, Studio Cité, his ‘artistic fair’: a playground for the human gaze in the form of installations, performances and interventions. Installing Studio Cité on a city square, Vandewalle created a space to host social meetings, discussions and exchange of ideas.
From 2017 to 2021, Vandewalle is artist-in-residence at the Kaaitheater in Brussels.
