Ludic Collective is essentially a small community of open-minded artists of different disciplines, with members currently scattered around the planet Earth. With passion for food, playing, experimenting, dance, music, devising and generally having fun, Ludic wants to collaborate with various artists and non-artists.
Collectively we produce: performances /workshops /soundscapes /doodles /animation /text and meals, etc.
Ludic focuses on creating movement-based theatre. However, things are always shifting and Ludic members work to bring in individual projects to the group and support each others’ projects.
Ludic likes to eat together, share ridiculous ideas, make stuff, create a BIG MESS and conduct many trial failures without feeling the deep fall.
In this residency they will explore ‘long distance collaboration’, where they will bring together Bucharest, London, Gothenborg in the CLOUD studio. They also invited Kate Slezak to present her workshop during their time in the studio.

Sebastian Pickering Pedersen
Danish/Canadian dancer, dance-maker and musician, b. 1994, Aarhus, Denmark. He has a varied background as a dancer, classical guitarist, fencer and white water canoeist.
As a choreographer he was recently artist in Residency at Performing Arts Platform in Denmark researching photography vs. movement/choreography with his collective aNorange, with whom he is currently working towards the premiere of their first longer piece. As a dancer he will be working with Icelandic Dance Company in January and Nicole Beutler (NB Projects) later in spring.
He is currently working on his movement research concerning involuntary/unconscious movement and has a flair for floor work and physical theatre.
During 2 weeks of exploration and creation at CLOUD, I will be working with different physical, theatrical and visual aspects of unconsciousness. Building on previous research concerning “Involuntary/unconscious movement” I will be continuing to work with physical tasks aiming to provoke the body to move without the performer consciously choosing to do so. The includes working with balance (loss), manipulation of the body and provoking physical reactions. I wish to combine this with a more theatrical approach by imitating states of consciousness – how can we theatrically express being conscious or unconscious? Can we create or imitate a state of in between – eg. sleep walking, being drunk, constantly switching between loosing and gaining consciousness?
The aim of this residency is to start transforming material and tasks from a practical movement research into a more artistic direction by finding out what images and associations appear from the exploration of physical and theatrical consciousness. By working with the theme and its tasks, what references might appear? What scenes can be built? What aesthetic does it have – does it have an aesthetic at all? Does it bring a context of its own, or does it need to be put in a certain “staged” context to have a meaning?
To prepare ourselves for working physically throughout the day, the warm ups will be working our stamina through floor work, partnering and improvisation, but also focus on more intricate exercises in balance and adding subtle theatricality to our ways of moving.
Please choose one or more days in which you will like to join

Mostly her art practice focuses on the intersection of language, imagination and human senses. Working with different media Tatiana is interested in creation of an art experience with active participation of an audience.
Currently she studies master program of Fine Art at HKU, University of Art, Utrecht NL.
During her residency at Cloud, artist Tatiana Kolganova will develop a participatory performance about imaginary contact with a natural landscape.
Everyone is welcome to join in the process of work and explore the different aspects of collective and personal imagination.
We will experiment with:
-Representative elements of a landscape.
-The power of a ceremonial process
-Different layers of personal imagination.

and others prepared and unexpected elements.
After each session we will have a short discussion about the process.
