Jason Respilieux

Born in Brussels, bilingual, I begin to train in dance at the age of 12 and join the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels and Codarts, school for the arts in Rotterdam. In 2014, I complete my studies, graduating from P.A.R.T.S., the dance school founded in Brussels by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker.

Since then, I have pursued a career as a dancer/performer amongst multiple choreographers: Salva Sanchis, Ted Stoffer, Claire Croizé, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and most recently Louise Vanneste.

In paralell, a teaching career also allows me to develop singular body practices and choreographic writing tools.

My combined expertise as a dancer and a teacher opens up the perspectives of a varied choreographic research that is an equal reflection of my diverse parcours. My work situates itself on the verge of several art-practice with a focus on the moving body and how one relate to its surroundings. My artistic practices inscribe themselves within this plurality.
