About

The Grey Space participates in Museumnacht Den Haag in which the city’s cultural institutions open their doors during the night. The Grey Space presents try-outs of works by artist-in-residence Karel van Laere and dancer and choreographer Eleni Ploumi (in collaboration with DansBrabant). DJ Nèna will close the evening. Timetable: - Karel van Laere, try out of _Reach_ - Eleni Ploumi, try out of _Killing Time_ - Nèna, DJ-set Program: Performance artist Karel van Laere is an artist in residence at The Grey Space. From September until November 2021 he works on his project _Reach_. Van Laere’s work takes place at the intersection of live performance and visual art. His own body is the starting point in every artistic process. A recurring theme in his work is the antagonism between the human body and technological systems. The starting point of this three month residency is his fascination with laparoscopic instruments (robotic tools used for surgery). This try out takes the shape of a performance in which the instruments are transformed to human bodies. In her work Eleni Ploumi is always looking for the dialogue between the body and the space and how that space fuels processes in the body. It is this intense experience that she shares with an audience. Under the motto _Killing Time_, Eleni is working on a research project in which she examines physical limitations and how to break through them. Accompanied by her wooden bench, she travels along various cellars and vaults. Together with the audience she dives into a physical, energetic experience. Karel van Laere | Eleni Ploumi | Nèna
