Who We Are

The combined forces of experienced artist/educators Angela Clarke and Camilla Maling.

Back in 2017 over a glass of Prosecco in a Coburg pub, their collaboration was born. Firstly as a sound duo - Sonic Field, an exciting performative encounter to make the unheard, heard. Their first audio work From The Stillness was accepted into the Fielding Project 2017/18 - an RMIT initiative supported by an ARC Linkage Grant. Clarke & Maling’s collaboration quickly progressed into areas of mutual interest & passion; education, embodied practices, improvisation, performance, social philosophy and the like.

Live Particle was conceived through a long held desire to see embodiment practices in the education system and out into the connective tissue of our communities. Clarke & Maling believe this is a performative act of generating and substantiating live knowing.

Angela Clarke

Angela is a Melbourne based, multi-disciplinary artist/educator & researcher who uses embodiment practices to create both live and recorded performance work. As a theatre maker and singer/songwriter, recent original live works include Imagine This . . .’ at Abbostford Convent and The Last Ovum at Melbourne Fringe Festival.

Angela is a classically trained singer who has worked collaboratively with a range of artists and musicians over the past couple of decades. Her original music with Civil Tongues and Luminate Ensemble blurs the lines between high art and popular culture by encompassing both operatic and everyday vocal sounds. Inspired by immersive ontologies, Angela’s performance philosophy work explores the fragility of humans and the natural world.

Angela has worked extensively in creative arts education, writing, directing and producing numerous student productions. She has recently completed a creative practice PhD at Monash University and currently teaches in the School of Art at RMIT University. Her PhD work can be found at www.angelaclarkephd.com
