HORIZON FACTORY:
SISTERS OF THE CELESTIAL ORDER OF NEPHOLOGY





Polluting clouds from factory smoke stacks, exhaust clouds from fume pipes, atmospheric clouds on the horizon, electronic clouds where data is stored; The Sisters of the Celestial Order of Nephology (the study of clouds) is an interdisciplinary performance project by Horizon Factory (Erin Hill and Nina Vroemen).

Forming in 2019, during a dance residency at Studio 303 (Montreal), the fictitious, sudo-sect of two, blue cloaked, atmospheric-nuns were called by the unseizability of clouds and the ephemeral narratives that form them. These narratives are personal, environmental, futuristic, and potential warning signs.





CCOV & SUONI PER IL POPOLO PRESENT
“Pouvez-vous amener votre BBQ ?”

May 2022

Can you bring your BBQ?” is an hour and a half of music and dance that will transport the audience in a reconstituted park in the CCOV studio. Basketball court, fake lawn, barbecues and tablecloths, the time of an evening in the heart of winter, the spectators will live a real summer day to the rhythm of invited artists: dance performers, circus performers, saxophonists, DJs, etc.
