La Ballade des Simples

de Ondine Cloez

La ballade des simples ( The simples’ walk ) is a guided tour through song, performed by Anne Lenglet, Clémence Galliard and Ondine Cloez. It is a variation of the indoor project L’art de conserver la santé around the eponymous 13th century work.
We extract the poems that describe the plants in a garden and we sing them. In doing so, we layer the past and the present, what we see and know now and in the Middle Ages.

Ondine Cloez

 

Ondine Cloez (1979) is a French choreographer and performer based in Brussels. She began by training in classical dance at the National Conservatory of Grenoble. In 1998, she moved to Brussels and studied at P.A.R.T.S. for three years. She participated in the Ex.e.r.ce training at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier, in 2002.

Since then she has worked as a performer for Mathilde Monnier, Laurent Pichaud, Linda Samaraweerova, Marcos Simoes, Sara Manente, Jaime Llopis, Randy Carreno, Rémy Héritier, Antoine Defoort & Halory Goerger, Grand Magasin, Jocelyn Cottencin, Loïc Touzé, Gaël Santisteva…

In 2009, she co-signed with Sara Manente and Michiel Reynaerts the video Some Performances and the in situ project Grand Tourists.
In 2018 she created her first piece, the solo Vacances vacance and L’art de conserver la santé in October 2020. In the wake of this creation she proposes a declination for outdoor La Ballade des Simples.

In 2020 and 21, Ondine Cloez is artist in residence at the Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers. Starting from the 13th century work, L’art de conserver la santé, she multiplies the proposals in arborescence: a choreographic piece, walks and visits, conferences extending her reflection on health and the Middle Ages.
