A group of Hague’s artists loosely related to the ArtScience Interfaculty, KABK, sketch a series of experiments at CLOUD Danslab this week.
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.”

The 10th edition of CLOUD Club will be special! In a 4-HOURS session we will approach a mix of choreographic elements borrowed directly from the CLUB and from DANCE TRAINING. While dancing on TECHNO MUSIC, we will train the activity of LOSING OURSELVES, attempting to enter a state close to TRANCE while studying movement. Sneakers obligatory!
HIGHER WORKSHOP is a movement research practice based on club dancing.
Please bring your own drinks

Session starts from 19:00-23:00, no entrance possible after 19:00.CLOUD Club is an experimental dance session in the dance studio. An unpredictable dance club. Amateurs and professionals united for the fun of learning. Since its beginnings in 2014, we have had an increased number of enthusiastic participants who get to know CLOUD – bridging audience and dancers worldwide.About Michele Rizzo
Michele Rizzo (1984) graduated in 2011 at the SNDO (School for new Dance Development, Amsterdam), where he is now a guest teacher in choreography and movement research, and in 2015 at Sandberg Institute of Amsterdam, in the Dirty Art Department master program. Since 2012 he is supported by the ICK International Choreographic Art Centre of Amsterdam. His artistic practice touches various disciplines, including performance, music and visual art. Through out 2014 and 2015 his research has zoomed into the phenomenon of club dancing, which he has developed into performances, installations and workshops. His choreographic work, produced by Frascati Theatre Amsterdam and International Choreographic Centre ICK Amsterdam, revolves often around existential or ontological topics, such as the definition of the self, its inscription in the cultural-sociological context, the concepts of origin and flow and their implication in the development of creative practices.In the past few years he has been working with various artists, such us Julian Hetzel, Gertjan Franciscus, Vincent Riebeek, Igor Dobricic, and the musicians LVM and Lorenzo Senni.
16 November – 25 November
Performance in Quartair Tuesday 8 December | 19:30
Polytope , tractable geometry for the curiosity of the user.
Polytope is an articulated net of tetrahedrons, built by rods of carbon fiber, which by its geometry allows a multitude of constructions and possibilities. The structure is designed for the interaction of one or more individuals, who can discover the possibilities of the object by handling it and moving through space. The strategy of the structure is to engage the users in an intuitive exploration of various shapes and positions.
Polytope will be performed in Quartair (Toussaintkade, 55, The Hague) during No Patent Pending #17 by SonoLab (Vitaly Medvedev & Mei Yi-Lee) and Fazle Shairmahomed. No Patent Pending is a nomadic performance series presenting radical interdisciplinary practices that engage with sound, image, space and the body. Imagining new tools to articulate everyday phenomena, extending the body, remapping sense perceptions, hacking and reinventing existing media and codes, creating time and space for events which find their preferred storage medium in the memory of participants.

About Ludmila Rodrigues
As an artist Ludmila researches ways of interacting with the audience. She creates situations, spaces and devices for choreographing the public, generating spontaneous, collaborative actions in which she aims to enrich human communication.
Once a month, you have the chance to move and groove at CLOUD Studio! It’s show time. It’s work out. It’s the best hang out in town! It’s CLOUD Club!
The forth edition (on September 20th) was hosted by the awesome Damani Leidsman, who gave a warm-up of 45 minutes, a journey through many faces of Africa, driving flow, communication, rhythm, grounding, and most of all, a lot of fun!
We continued the evening vibrating freely on varied music styles.

Ludmila Rodrigues creates spaces, situations and devices in order to make the public move. Her fascination relies on the embodied knowledge inherent to us all, thus, on the presence of the audience. How can the audience be engaged? How do they relate to each other? Can we share movement and synchronize our actions producing a bigger movement?
Ludmila was born in Rio, Brazil, and is based in The Hague since 2009. With a degree in Architecture and a second degree in Artscience at the KABK (Royal Academy of Art, The Hague), she is now researching on Haptics (tactile communication) and she reports her findings in the blog: sharingmotions.wordpress.com
By using light materials, such as elastics, ropes and wood, Ludmila creates sets in which visitors start playing, as if dancing with each other, connected by the structure that augments and reflects their interactions.
The presentation happened on Sunday, december 1st at the CLOUD/Danslab Studio.
