“Usually, the public comes, watches something and then they leave. But in the 21st century they no longer want to watch something, they want to be part of something, make an experience.”
Marina Abramović, 2016

With the start of this project we are engaging a dialogue between the action and the audience and ultimately between the audience among itself. The project aims to provoke an aesthetic art experience, inspire and stimulate intellectual reflection about audience’s freedom and free will and raise question about identity and the act of engaging or not engaging in the course of an action .
With Meyer’s statement – the audience as active co-creator- the initial starting point claims that the audience members needs perspectives and tools within its own creativity to challenge its cognitive perception as a group and as individual.
We like to engage a conversation about expectation from the audience member point of view and how the audience member would like to be engaged and challenged in a performance.
We would like to formulate question like “Is the presence of the audience already sufficient to be a co-creator?” How as audience member I deal with my desire and fear during a performance? What makes ultimately a remarkable performance? This will be a very small moment of our research towards the production of this project but we are looking forwards to design this session in three phases: a small showing of material, engage interactive physicality with the group and conduct a conversation with the aim to gather ideas that could eventually be develop later in the process.

7 September – 18 September
Not looking to ascend into the heavens you can find freedom in falling to earth.
Imagine you could be at 10 different places at the same time. Imagine you had the capacity to have different minds.
Imagine you could change appearance.
The meaning of your action would be radically different.
The meaning of your self as an unlimited being could mean to exist in another time, place or civilization.
Would you agree to disappear for this other you?
During his residency at CLOUD Jerome Meyer will explore how spoken words affects the way movements and meaning are generated and how perceived feedback of the movements will affect the musicality of live spoken words. He will look at how personal humoristic philosophical inquiry with musicality of choreographed improvised score can match together.
Dr. Alkis Raftis, President of the International Dance Council at UNESCO, visited CLOUD on October 10th. This was part of a major visit to The Netherlands, he performed, between 09-13 October, to obtain a picture of the dance scenario in the country and to propose international cooperation.
Everyone was invited and many people took the opportunity to represent dance in Holland.
The visit of Dr. Alkis Raftis was organized by Laura Maria De Gaspari, Member of the International Dance Council (CID), the official umbrella organization for all forms of dance in all countries of the world. CID is recognized by UNESCO, national and local governments, international organizations and institutions. It brings together the most important international, national and local organizations, as well as select individuals active in dance. It is a non-governmental organization founded in 1973 within the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, where it is based.
