“Gaube shows here in half an hour that house has grown from countless popular sources into a fully fledged expressive medium.”


Over the past few years, Gaube has immersed himself in House dance - learning and practicing in the lively club scenes of Paris and New York. Sampling, appropriation and transformation are at the core of this dance form, which is itself a synthesis of styles including hip hop, salsa, Rasta and tap.

Moves, grooves and attitudes intertwine in fleeting constellations, unfurling the precise lexicon of House dance steps. Along the way, space is left open for the unexpected to occur and for a hybrid dance to emerge.

This new video has been created for Dublin Dance Festival from multiple recordings of the work. Filmed with different cameras and from different perspectives, it offers a unique and playful experience of the piece.
