Polish-born Karol Cysewski is a Cardiff-based choreographer and dancer. He studied at The State Ballet School in Poznan, Poland and went on to train at Laban Centre London graduating in 2001. Karol has since worked for several dance companies including Polish Dance Theatre, Carte Blanche in Norway, and National Dance Company Wales. Karol is now working as an independent dance artist, choreographer and teacher (including at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama).

After seven years at National Dance Company Wales, he left in 2012 to concentrate on creating his own work. His funny and physical choreography for Wonders of the Universe (in 2013/14) won him audience praise, and ultimately a four star review in the Guardian during his sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe. His newest work is Homo Irrationalis, toured in autumn 2015.
