Description 

Cloud is a self organized group breeding projects and supporting research on dance and movement-based art forms. Cloud provides space for residencies and dance classes: artists from across the world come to work and develop their processes, before the actual production of a new artwork. Cloud also hosts workshops, expert meetings, the Cloud Club nights and many other events. Cloud is a group of enthusiastic people working on a volunteer basis for making this space possible. They facilitate artists to research with absolute freedom and to share artists' process in a public session, at the end of the residencies. These sessions contribute on one hand to the individual process of the resident, and on the other hand, to the education of a broader public.

Cloud provides space for residencies, classes, workshops, show cases, presentations, seminars, community projects, dinners, parties, performances, debates, expert meetings, jams, city actions etc. Throughout time they also aim at developing festivals, educational programs.

Anyone who wants to learn, exchange and share about dance, movement and performance art is welcome to join in the activities in Cloud. Classes and workshops are open for everybody who is curious (neighbors, politicians, musicians, visual artists, dance professionals), research presentations give an insight in the kitchen of the residing artist, and Cloud's get-togethers are highly inspiring for people who would like to exchange about the latest avant-garde thoughts about current issues in dance and related arts (such as art in the public space, online sharing, and community building). Residencies are made available on a flexible basis, throughout the year, according to the order of applications. Taking into consideration that the studio is also used for classes during the evenings. Cloud offers support in video and photo registration, recording one interview and posting on their video channel.

Cloud focus points:

  • Encouraging interdisciplinary approaches within the field of movement research and performance.
  • How to bridge the gap between ordinary audiences and avant-garde artists of today.
  • Finding meaningful ways of documenting researches to continue further and online
Outcome 

From the residency, artists can develop their work further, towards the production and presentation of a finished piece. The audience profits from the shared sessions, where the artistic process is openly discussed so that both sides contribute to each other. If you’re an artist looking for a community of dance and professionals to share and exchange, come to Cloud. A place for trying and maturing ideas, starting a new piece and sharing a process with absolute freedom.
