Editor’s pick: KUEENG by Ana Sting & Chloé Caillet, dance as a transforming spiritual practice, δημοσίευση CLOT Magazine [18/11/2022]Marilena Pateraki
We are presenting Kueeng, an intimate and personal audiovisual work by artist and creative director Ana Sting and DJ and producer Chloé Caillet. This piece expresses their worlds in a unique universe, portraying a journey through clubbing, dance and self-expression concepts.
The artists wanted to portray the journey from the moment of entering a musical space until the music takes you; you lose control and become your authentic self closer to your spirit. Somehow away from the physical evolving into an expression of the most animal instincts: you don’t even think about your moves; you just let go of the cadence and rhythm.
Ana Sting explores spirituality, identity, womanhood, activism and sustainability through her work. For this project, she incepted the whole concept first, and they started elaborating on the music and expanding on the freedom and transformation that dance brings her and how it can be a transforming and spiritual practice, bringing her closer to her inner self and her animal spirit.
One of the inspirations behind the project is ecclesiastical sound, like a church organ, that brings this spiritual layer. I went to a Catholic school, and although I don’t practice it, it has been a recurring sound in my childhood, which somehow makes me feel connected or touched. So I had the idea to introduce some vocals to explain the core of the performance, which, step by step, will turn into a proper dance track, Ana explains. She is also very inspired by ’60s psychedelia that uses a lot of organs, like the Hammond. Besides, she continues, Chloe is a very talented producer and a pianist; she can take you anywhere with her melodies. She understood exactly what I wanted to say and quickly developed the intro.
