Residency project

"I believe that the key to authentic and natural portrayal of emotions in acting is based on a true sense of deep relaxation and focus in the actors presence, in my project with Nafas-ACCR I will research methods of breathing, movement, voice warm up and voice work that promote a combined relaxation and focus which are usually contradictory to each other. Abbaye de Sylvanès has hundreds of years of history of music and voice stored in its walls, my stay will coincide with the yearly festival, which is a great opportunity to be exposed to the wonderful voices and performances and stimulate my research."
