Wisse Scheele is a dancer and multi-disciplinary artist based in the Netherlands. He works with motion-design, dance, film and paint. At the age of 18, his first dance film was premiered at the Amsterdam University of the Arts. Since an early age Scheele has always aspired to be a ballet dancer and at the age of 10 he joined the Dutch National Ballet Academy. He was granted an award Dansersfonds beurs (Scholarship by Han Ebbelaar and Alexandra Radius) in 2020 and Youth award ‘Gouda star’ (Youth award by the city of Gouda) in 2015. In 2021, his choreography titled ‘Nothing Matters When We’re Dancing’ was performed on the stage of The Dutch National Ballet by Arthur Erlandson.

Alongside his passion to dance, Wisse always had an urge to create his own work, searching for new and different ways to express his emotions. In this journey he discovered that it was possible to transfer movements to a digital world by recording his movement with motion capture software.

Dance is the main focus in almost all of Wisse Scheele’s work. The drive behind his creations is the challenge to find new ways and possibilities to re-envision dance and the way it is perceived. By bringing dance to the 3D space he has created a place without boundaries or limitations where he has all the freedom to tell his stories.
