Title of the project: “Research on voice, sound and movement”
MASTERCLASS: Voice-Movement Composition
The workshops I give focus on voice composition and bodywork in relation to the voice. Using different tools for vocal composition as text, singing, rhythmical phrasing and (re)-production of sound. The workshop also focuses on how we deal with language and word. We work with words and text by means of automatic writing. This text becomes the basis for the further development of language and vocal sound and the development of a soundtrack for the choreography. The research into movement focuses on the transformation of daily movement, the gesture and communication, in search for the poetry of the simple act.

Ine Claes graduated from the Amsterdam School of the Arts in 2008. Her interest in movement and visual arts led to collaborations with visual artists Jacques Urbanska, Thomas Israel, Liesbeth Marit, Sara Claes and Koen Moerenhout. Ine worked as a performer and vocalist for Joji Inc, Cie Le Cardage, Saïd Oudrassi, Artshare, Cie Le Cardage and Marion Lévy. In 2012 she created the duet Riptide, together with Aloun Marshal and music by Sara Claes, a performance in a fountain created for Nuit Blanche Brussels and Stockholm Fringe. In 2013 she and Johanne Saunier will start the dance and music project Ballets Confidentiels, where she worked as an artistic director, choreographer and vocalist.

In 2018, she stopped working with Ballets Confidentiels in order to give her own research more space. In 2017 she created the solo I choke, You choke, let’s All choke together, the work that laid the foundation for her current research. In 2019 she creates the sound project DIVE with Mathieu Calleja and Juan Parra Cancino and the performance Dialogues with a View – Soup for Breakfast, a collaboration with Maja Jantar. In 2020 she receives a grant from the Flemish government for her research on disorientation and the common ground between her work and Japanese theatre. In 2020 she creates a new transdisciplinary creation, asfaraswecantell, mingling voice, movement and spacialization, a work for 2 singers, Andreas Halling and Maja Jantar and 2 dancers, Áine Reynolds and Adrián Sánchez Núñez. In 2020 she also creates the movement and soundscape for the performance interval wiper switch with visual artist Line Boogaerts.
