Multidisciplinary artist, Celia Stroom is developing her artistic projects between Paris and Berlin where she currently resides. She grew up surrounded by paintings, classical music and dance. She is dancer, choreographer, classical singer, historian of art, and curator. She graduated in History of Art, Iconology and Museology from the University of Paris-Sorbonne, and studied contemporary dance as well as opera singing and polyphonic music from a young age at the Conservatoire in Paris.
The creative process of her projects is always inspired by the old masters of Renaissance and the Bauhaus school. She focuses on intimate details, while taking care of the big picture in her work. She always creates a project with an holistical point of view.
She is passionately devoted to :
- the choreography (how the body shapes the space on stage)
- the polyphonic music that she practiced since 15 years. She likes to create in her performance different vocal textures and colors of sounds.
- the improvisation with voice and body
- immersive creations which stimulates all the senses
She works as performer, dance coach and vocal improviser exploring the human voice and how it can be transformed through a dance performance, especially in Kunstwollen, the label she created in 2015 in Berlin.
She creates for this label the project L'OEIL ECOUTE, a contemporary installations-performances bringing together set design, history of art, physical theater, contemporary dance and vocals. Each piece brings to life a famous painting, reinvigorated in a contemporary fashion, and is realized by a designer with composite materials: human body, sounds, wood, iron, vegetables, fabrics.
Following up an holistic approach OE wants to reinvigorate the cornerstone of the Bauhaus School: every performers consider and invest in each piece of art as a dynamic or embodied whole. Any split between Fine, Applied of Living Arts is banished. The creative process is entirely oriented towards the stimulation of every senses, those of the artists and the public. It combines art to craft and cognitive sciences as well.
This project is supported by the patron Sandra Hégédüs Mulliez.
