About Cloud Dance Festival

Cloud Dance Festival is a contemporary dance platform which not only aims to showcase the work of promising and exciting choreographers, but also seeks to nurture and support them through their creation process and with their professional development.

Founded in 2007, we have presented works by over 150 choreographers and companies in 14 festivals, including many who have since gone on to become leading emerging and midscale artists.

We continue to explore the different avenues of support needed by professional artists and seek ways to provide this support, either independently or in partnership with other support organisations.

Kerstin Schellander



Solo for Two
Choreographers & Dancers:
Alexandra Wingate & Kerstin Olivia Schellander

 

This project is a research about the two of us
creating a solo together; It deals with the
choreographer/performer and the friend/colleague
 dynamics which exist within the collaboration.

Two equal dance artists and friends meet and by
 letting the process slowly unfold ask the question:
 Where does “the dance” come from?

By defining edges of improvised movement
and then diving deeper into it we are searching
for the ambiguity and the multiple meanings
 existing in the solo.


Kerstin Schellander is originally from Austria,
Alexandra Wingate comes from Sweden. Both of us
 studied at the Laban Dance Center where we found
 each other as friends and collaborators. We have now
 been working and researching together for over
 a period of three years.
