Michel Casanovas

Michel Casanovas is a dancer, choreographer and Feldenkrais practitioner. He has studied Ballet and Contemporary Dance. He has worked as a professional dancer in different theatres and companies in France, Belgium and Switzerland. Since 1996 he has been the co-founder, dancer and choreographer of the dance company Morespace, Basel (Switzerland). In 2015 he founded the ONA association in Collioure (South of France). In the dance theatre movement, his solo work “Le Corps Deporte”, has been performed in Switzerland, France, Netherlands and Germany. Since 2006, Michel has been regularly teaching Contemporary Dance, Improvisation and the Feldenkrais method in India. His work has taken him to Bangalore, Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi and more, where he has also directed research workshops, residencies for artists and worked with children with special needs. His choreographic work reveals a sensitive approach, often poetics of the dance and beyond only the physical aspect. In a constant search for a “true” gesture of expression, of a spontaneous movement between elaborated structure and improvisation, this approach opens a space where the interpreters can express and share their strength, as well as their fragility, in resonance with their hearing.  He lives between France and Switzerland, and has been regularly teaching in India.
