Ondine Cloez was born in 1979. In 1998, she moved to Brussels and studied at P.A.R.T.S. for three years. In the past two decades she has danced with a variety of choreographers, stage directors and artists: Randy Carreño, Mathilde Monnier, Loïc Touzé, Linda Samaraweerová, Jaime Llopis, Gaël Santisteva, Rémy Héritier, Grand Magasin, Antoine Defoort and Halory Goerger. In 2009, she co-directed with Sara Manente and Michiel Reynaerts a video called Some Performances and Grand Tourists, a site-specific project. In 2018 she created her first choreographic work Vacances vacance, followed by L’art de conserver la santé in 2020, then La ballade des simples designed for parks and gardens, and its concert version Salerno in collaboration with the creative team. She was in residency at Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers in 2020 and 2021. She is currently working on a duo with Kotomi Nishiwaki entitled The first word of the first poem of the first collection is basket to be presented in 2024.

“Describe, explain, interpret, translate. In this workshop, we shall attempt to apply each of these instructions through speech and movement. We shall be sharing the tips and tricks of interpretation, revealing what happens when we set ourselves in motion, unveiling or discovering our mechanisms the better to foil or alter them. This research focuses on the gap between what we think and what we do, what we do and what is perceived, what is perceived and what is said.” Ondine Cloez
