Michiel Vandevelde started his dance career as a youngster at fABULEUS and afterwards studied at P.A.R.T.S. He is a choreographer, curator, programmer, writer and opinion-maker. His political and artistic activism is the common thread running through everything he does.
Michiel was artistic leader of Bâtard, a festival aiming to give a platform to young, international artists in Brussels and has been part of the artistic team of Extra City Kunsthal in Antwerp. Between 2017 and 2021 he was an artist-in-residence at Kaaitheater, Brussels. Last season, he started working as a performing arts programmer at DE SINGEL, Antwerp. He is also the creative ambassador of the city of Leuven.
From a young age he has been interested in creating and being part of a collective dynamic. Even now he keeps on searching for social, economical and cultural alternatives to the dominant mindset of our current society. As a choreographer he alternates between working for his own organisation Disagree and various others such as fABULEUS, Platform-K, PACT Zollverein, etc.
In 2022-2023, Michiel Vandevelde reprises Dances of Death and The Goldberg Variations together with Platform-K.
