Over the 5 days we will go through different types of exercices, as well as collective and individual explorations, to develop a new vocal range according to chosen vocal registers, repertoires, and individual artistic intentions. This will be done by opening up each singer’s vocal range, with accuracy and gentleness, while being respectful of their strength areas. Every day, some time will be set aside so that to apply this approach to each participant’s repertoire.
Christine begins performing on stage for singing and theater shows directed by Patrick Font, in1989, while still training at the CNR in Grenoble and in various workshops. From 1992 on, her interest takes her toward multidisciplinary works (theater, dance, singing) and she begins to work for choreographers and theater directors, such as Bruno Meyssat (1993-1999).
Christine pursues her training in lyrical singing, as well as taking part in a contemporary vocal music workshop at the Centre Acanthe (2002), led by Françoise Kubler. A certified Feldenkrais practitioner since 2000, Christine also trained in voice anatomy and physiology with phoniatrician Guy Cornut and Blandine Calais-Germain.
Co-founder of the non-profit organization Mercoledi & Co (1996 to 2001), she develops a unique body of works via performances in the form of reading-concerts (Michaux, Wedenski, Kafka), readings of contemporary authors, and performances in music improvisation.
Since then, she’s developing a duet with bass player Eric Chalan, titled « à mesure... » (co-written with Ghislain Mugneret/texts and Guillaume Orti/music). Christine is also regularly invited by contemporary composers and authors.
Since 2005 she works both in Bourgogne where she founded D’un instant à l’autre company, and Paris where she still collaborates with music-improvisers, composers and authors.
Christine teaches vocal techniques, vocal improvisation, musical theater and ways to integrate body and stage work (Certified Feldenkrais® practitioner since 2000), throughout France and beyond, in professional training settings for musicians, singers, dancers or actors (Harmoniques in Paris, Orsay CFMI, ARIAM, CNFPT, Afdas training sessions, Opera Houses), throughout France and beyond.
