David Cassel

David Cassel has been working professionally as a writer, director, graphic artist, teacher, and performing artist since 1978. He has spent his career traveling the world creating and presenting original inter disciplinary productions that have convergence and hybridization as their central creative principles. Each of David's performance explorations bring together a multitude of elements including comedy, clown, character, story, narrative, acting technique, circus skill, juggling, acro balance technique, acrobatics, choreography, dance, improvisation, and, most importantly, human interactivity.

In addition to a robust performance career, David has continuously created numerous educational curricula for classes and workshops in physical theatre, sport oriented performance and a variety of related disciplines. His programs have been presented through primary, secondary and tertiary school systems in Canada, Australia, Belgium, Holland, France, Germany and Poland. In the early part of the internet revolution he pioneered an on line study companion to supplement his live classes.

While always maintaining a relationship with outdoor performance and spectacle, David has extensive indoor experience as a Theatre Designer, Film Maker, Digital Programming Specialist, Educator, Producer and Artistic Leader. He has developed learning processes that integrate on line digital education with an intensive live physical theatre training program. David's work is an example of the kind of Digital and Physical convergence that 21st century technology was created to facilitate.
