The Cloud of Unknowing

The Cloud of Unknowing is a new performance venture from two artists, Paul Michael Henry and Alex Mackay, rooted in experimental music and Butoh dance practices. Our main concerns are uncertainty, intervention into ‘consensus reality’ and using extremes of noise/silence, movement/stillness, and light / darkness to open up a space between them in which to be present but unknowable to ourselves, drawing upon the artists’ backgrounds and training in experimental music and Butoh.
