Researcher

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) in Studies and practices of arts. My research is about the performativity in opera.

I am quite particularly interested in the embodiment in the practice of singing by the use of the movement and the somatic education (Eutony, Feldenkrais, Body-Mind Centering, Dalcroze Eurhythmics).
