Cie.OFEN

 

Cie.OFEN is the creative base for dancers and choreographers: Gala Moody and Michael Carter. Utilising over 15 years experience working in world renowned companies like Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch and Ultima Vez/Wim Vandekeybus.

Gala and Michael take inspiration from multiple art-making processes which have become the backbone for Cie.OFEN creations.  With strong influences from literature, theatre, sculpture, poetry and performance art.

The name Cie.OFEN is an anagram which is derived from the title of Cie.OFEN’s debut work One Final Evolutionary Note which premiered in 2014 in the Spring Forward festival (Umeå, Sweden) and also saw Cie.OFEN’s selected by Aerowaves as a priority company in 2014.

After One Final Evolutionary Note, Cie.OFEN made a giant leap into what became The Vase. An evening length work about the destruction and power of love, The Vase premiered in Wim Vandekeybus’ Ulti’mates Festival (Kortrijk, Belgium) in October 2015.

Whilst continuing to tour these 2 works, development has began for Cie.OFEN’s next creation titled New People which premiers at the end of 2018.

Cie.OFEN is based between Belgium and Germany.
