Residence | Performance artist Ronald Bal | 2 – 9 July

From 2 – 9 July at CLOUD Danslab

Ronald Bal graduated as a visual artist at ArtEZ Zwolle (the Netherlands) and was awarded with the ‘Best of graduates 2010’ exhibition at Gallery Ron Mandos in Amsterdam. His work is shown at diverse museums and project spaces, including museum CODA in Apeldoorn (2104-2015) 21 Rozendaal in Enschede  (2010), National Palace of Culture in Sofia (2016) and the Grimmuseum in Berlin (2013). In addition, Ronald Bal participated in various festivals and academic conferences, such as PAO 2015 in Oslo, Creature Live Art in Kaunas (2014), Venice International Performance Art Week in Venice (2016) and the academic conference ‘The politics of Performance and Play. Feminist Matters (Leiden University, 2016). From 2010 – 2016 Gallery Zerp in Rotterdam represented his work and showed his work in various exhibitions and art fairs. Ronald Bal also taught performance art at Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam and during PAS 2014 (Performance Art Studies) in Kaunas, Lithuania.

Characteristic for Ronald Bal is a multidisciplinary practice that integrates visual- and performance art through various methods of translation, such as choreography, sculpture, video and storytelling. In doing so he explores the language of movement, creates spaces to expose and elude systems of representation and mechanisms of subjectification, and aims to reformulate the relationship between the object and the subject.


Try-out ‘Papier Multiforme et Papier Comestible’ 30 June 2017


By Emilie Gallier, Tilman Andris, Jamillah Sungkar

‘Papier Multiforme et Papier Comestible’ is one performance inside of which two performances co-habit. Two performances take place on a same stage at the same time; next to each other as if in two neighbouring living rooms with invisible walls.

On one side, the performance of the ‘Papier Multiforme’ involves magic and choreography around a dinner table at which spectators sit. On the other side, the performance of the ‘Papier Comestible’ takes the form of a choreographed book club where spectators experience reading as a convivial act.
At times, the two performances spill into each other, influencing their respective rhythms.
As neighbours of a perceptible adjacent performance, spectators research the impertinent absence and exercise of ubiquity, of being elsewhere, where they are not.

50 minutes, English spoken
6 spectators at the table
12 in the book club
[We will close registration at 18 people.]

Residency Rodrigo Alves

Rodrigo Alves

Presentation | Monday 3 August | 18:00

Rodrigo Alves, performance and film maker presents an essay on interruption, a study on non-linear performance or the art of interruption. Yet, and most perpetually in development.

With Bryndis Brynjolfsdottir and Maurits Goossens (dancer and composer)

Rodrigo Alves studied in Lisbon’s Dance Conservatory and later finished his degree on dance performance at CODARTS, Rotterdam. As performer he worked for Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, De Nationale Opera and Duo Attema-Haring.

As a maker Rodrigo is focused on the human condition, the core of humanity and animality, as means to develop works in the field of live art and film.

He has made several dance, performance and exhibition pieces in both Portugal and The Netherlands and March this year he presented his second short film ‘demora’ at OFF SCREEN, Rotterdam.

The spectator will contribute by being part of a performing state that happens with watching the performance, sitting down, coughing, clapping etc (unconscious choreography), even if silence fills the room, it will be used as an instrument for conducting the next step.

The performance, at this moment of construction, involves Scapino dancer Bryndis Brynjolfsdottir whose been part of my creative work in a previous piece and in a short film, and composer Maurits Goossens. Both act as performers of physicality as well as composers of real life sound-images; which could be the pulling of a chair, talking or water running. Finding a balance between body and sound is our second important focus.

At the end of the research week, a presentation will offered, to further the investigation on how it works with the real audience and how adaptable or destroyable it might become.

Dreaming, memories & meditation

Workshop and Concert by Zvuv String Trio


Too often we ignore dreams. As if our awake reality would completely delete what happened during the dream state. Why does it have to be over when we wake up?

We invite you to a day where our main focus are dreams. We will explore them and make music with them and with your help. If you are a dreamer, either during the day or during the night, this is the right place to be. Read more.

Wen Chin Fu & Evangelia Kolyra

Wen and Evangelia share the first findings of their research in experimenting with how we can use the body to operate an instrument, and how an instrument and the sound it creates can move the body.

Presentation on Sunday 15th December at 8pm.
Wen Chin Fu graduated in 2006 from the Classical Music Department of Shih Chien University, Taipei, and continued her studies at the ArtScience interfaculty of The Hague, where she graduated in 2010. Her performances explore the relationship between physical movement, sound and the environment. A key element of her practice is concentration, which opens the senses for perceiving things through new perspectives.
Evangelia Kolyra is a Greek born London-based independent choreographer and dancer, interested in choreographing within theatre, site-specific, film, and installation contexts. She endeavors to offer audiences a kinesthetically rich experience of unexpected, humorous, and sometimes dark or sinister sides to the psychology of human experience, presented within highly detailed and physical performances where ideas are derived through movement.
Her work has been featured in various platforms and festivals throughout Europe, and her aim is to develop a cross-disciplinary and highly collaborative practice.
Evangelia has an MFA in Choreography from Roehampton University, a BA in Dance from Professional Dance School D.Gregoriadou, and a BA in Greek Philology-Linguistics from National & Kapodistrian University of Athens.
