Yes! The next CLOUD Club will be on Saturday, April 9th, 2016!
Our resident Zwoisy Mears-Clarke will guide an intensive shaking session.
Doors open at 19:30
Session starts at 20:00 (no entrance after 20:00)
The physical practice of shaking is a personal preparation of “getting in tune” with ourselves so that when we sit the tensions will be dissolved. The repetitive action of continuously shaking can lessen and grow in intensity as we experiment with what state of the body/mind will be produced through this active release.
CLOUD Club is an experimental dance session where a new dancer/choreographer/artist is invited to guide a journey of about 2 hours. CLOUD Club is for everyone interested, from any ages and backgrounds – no expertise required! Read more on: CLOUD Club
Zwoisy Mears-Clarke was born in Jamaica and immigrated to U.S.A. at the age of 13, before heading off again at 21. Following this ongoing migratory experience Zwoisy’s work focuses on the translation of untold stories. Paired with discussion of written and oral stories throughout the process of creating each piece, full-bodied movement, gestures, scholarly literature and collaboration are used to support its materialization. The aim of this process remains to provide alternatives ways to share experiences and form connections between estranged communities. Zwoisy received a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University, New York City and a B.A. in Physics and Dance at Oberlin College, Oberlin, U.S.A. in 2012. Within the work, one will find that these opposing yet complementary concepts of the body are connected. In the recent years, Zwoisy has studied with Billie Hanne, Jodi Melnick, Kirstie Simson, Mary Cochran, and Nancy Stark-Smith, and has performed the works of Isabelle Schad,Susan Rethorst, Kyle Abraham, Will Rawls, and Wendy Jehlen. Zwoisy has performed and shown work at venues both in Berlin and New York City, such as HAU, Sophiensaele, New York Live Arts, the Tank and the Glicker-Milstein Black Box Theatre. Currently, Zwoisy is based in Berlin.
