The latest additions to Cielito...

Cielito is the name given to our organization that is actually made up of many tiny projects shown here under one roof.  See below for a brief description of some of our latest projects.

MONDAY PRACTICA - Please note there is no practica at STUDIO Cielito on the 9th May, we continue as normal on the 16th May!

Performance walk searching for dance, theatre and music acts.

i have been asked to organize a performance walk as part of the Cultuurland festival in a beautiful Garden and theatre complex at Ederveen. The basics are to create a short performance piece to be performed 2nd July in Ederveen. This performance is somewhere between 3 - 10 minutes long and will be repeated twice during the afternoon. We are looking for pieces that are flexible with an outside space, working with the theme of sculptures that are physically present in the garden. It can be anything from theatre to dance and music. There is no payment for this performance so its best to consider this when thinking over this invitation. There will be 1-2 places with a floor for dancing on and the rest will be natural outside paths and woodland area.

If you would be interested to have more information, please send an email to info@cielito.nl and i can fill you in and answer any questions you might have. Deadline for answers in 5 may when i will be drawing up the final plan to submit to the festival.greetings Isolde kanikaniwww.cieltio.nl
