CLOUD Club #13 Hypnosonic Encounters with the Unknown | with Virginie Dubois

Next CLOUD Club will be a sonic trip to the unknown. Guided by sound artist Virginie Dubois (FR/NL), we’ll depart on a trance session, with sounds from here and the beyond. Virginie is preparing a new piece specially for this occasion, and you’re invited to join her experiment of ‘entrainment’ at the CLOUD/Danslab studio.

Entrainment in Biomusicology in the synchronization of organisms to an external rhythm. Together and with the construction of rhythms provided by Virginie, we’ll tremble, shiver and burst to beats from around the world.

This will be the first time that CLOUD Club hosts a sound artist to provide the dancing experience. CLOUD Club is an experimental  space to engage artists, choreographers, dancers, movers of all kinds and the audience on the dance-floor. Organized by CLOUD members Fazle Shairmahomed and Ludmila Rodrigues.

We hope to see you then!

About Virginie Dubois:

Virginie Dubois (FR, 1977) completed her art studies at the KABK Royal Academy of Arts & Koncon/Royal Conservatory in The Hague in 2013, and received a second master degree in applied arts at the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam in 2014.
Her work focuses on the relationship between sound, space and architecture; and more generally between sound and the listener.
Using architecture and urban places as musical instruments, Dubois explores the sonority of space and develops sound installations, sound walks and public interventions with the idea to enhance the acoustic qualities of the space.

“In my approach, ‘walking’ and ‘listening’ are essential: they are the fundamental tools at the heart of my practice. By bringing awareness and presence to simple actions and social behaviors, my goal is to invite the audience to experience ‘listening’ as a playful and powerful methodology.
From walking to intentionally wandering, from hearing to carefully listening, one will learn how to consciously, and fully partake to the environment.
It is then, that the perception of sound becomes a spatial event, a material phenomenon, and a physiological experience.”

CLOUD Club #11: SHAKEN | With Zwoisy Mears-Clarke

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)
Contribution: €7,5

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

About Zwoisy

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.
