The Tempest

The Tempest

A contemporary dance performance with live music and video mapping, based on the play by William Shakespeare.

A castaway king is about to be trapped in a maze, where the creatures of its creator live: Ariel, a sprite, and Caliban, a monster. As thirteen moments inspired from Shakespeare’s tale of conspiracy and lust for power, the adaptation focuses on the powers of creation, transformation, and illusion. The performers interpret multiple parts and, accompanied by live music and visuals, introduce us to the polar opposites of creative forces in a journey towards forgiveness.

VITRUVIAN THING

Vitruvian Thing interior

Art space, contemporary dance stage, live music venue, audiovisual studio. Home of the fuzzy mind and the experimentally inclined psyche. And Die Wolke Art Group’s headquarters.

Inside the 130 sq.m. space one finds a theatrical stage with an arsenal of audiovisual technology supporting it, an electronics lab, an editing/color grading/VFX workstation, sound and lights, a 5m projection screen, cameras, and a host of sensor and controller apparatus. Also a small number of people that are adept at utilising the aforementioned implements to creative effect. Vitruvian Thing is intended to host all kinds of experimental activities, collaborations, and educational events: dancetheatre performances, live music, film projections, installations, theatre, talks, exhibitions.

Events at Vitruvian Thing are invariably underscored by our philosophy of quality and respect towards audience and artists. The venue, as well as its managing group Die Wolke, is a non-profit endeavour (Die Wolke is a registered non-profit company).

Occam‘s Sharpener is Die Wolke‘s media branch. Its projects range from the multi-awarded and internationally acclaimed Imago experimental dance film series to projection mapping installations and special effects for the Odyssey theme park at the Noesis Museum of Science and Technology, Thessaloniki, the Chocolate Park in Nicosia, and many more.

Occam also do post-production for video (editing, VFX, colour, etc), programming for the web, multimedia, and integrated platforms, sound design through its international partnership with sound art label Paradigm Weave, and specialise in complex, multifaceted, interactive projects with an artistic angle and technological edge.
