Jazz music takes over Bastardo, the most musical and festive hostel in Madrid. On March 26th we invite you to the performance of the Argentine Raúl Cassinerio, a professional dancer. Remember that if you don't have plans, don't worry because we offer you the best of the best in our hostel located in Malasaña. What are you waiting for?
To Bastardo, Raúl Cassinerio brings us the adaptations of two FOSSE choreographies: "Silky Thought", belonging to a special Bob Hope show from the 60s, and "Steam Heat", from the musical "The Pajama Game".
Among the disciplines he plays, Cassinerio is a lover and expert in the FOSSE style, of the master and choreographer Bob Fosse. This "theatrical monster", actor, dancer, choreographer, scriptwriter, theatre director, editor and film director, was the author of the choreographies of musicals such as "All that Jazz", "Cabaret", "Sweet Charity", "Chicago", "The Little Prince", thus becoming a reference thanks to his own unique style that he created.
He has been the only person to win the Tony ("Pippin"), Emmy ("Lizza With A Z") and Óscar ("Cabaret"), as best director. He also holds the record of having achieved EIGHT Tonys as choreographer, apart from another one as director.
He developed a personal and recognisable dance style, a kind of stylised jazz, with perfectly synchronised mini movements. Some of his amulets such as canes, chairs, gloves and bowler, a clear tribute to his idol Fred Astaire, served to hide his faults (baldness or hands), later becoming an indispensable reference in choreographies of great artists such as Michael Jackson.Entre las disciplinas que desempeña, Cassinerio es un amante y experto en el estilo FOSSE, del maestro y coreógrafo Bob Fosse. Este “monstruo teatral”, actor, bailarín, coreógrafo, guionista, director teatral, montador y director de cine, fue el autor de las coreografías de musicales como “All that Jazz”, “Cabaret”, “Sweet Charity”, “Chicago”, “El Principito”, convirtiéndose así en un referente gracias al estilo propio y único que creó.
