Atelier Opéra de-ci de-là avec Anthony Heidweiller, Festival d'Aix 2019

2020 OPÉRA DE-CI DE-LÀ RESIDENCY

March 25 2020 to June 20 2020
Residency open to young early-career, composers, stage directors, singers and instrumentalists

The Académie du Festival d'Aix is renewing its Opéra de-ci de-là residency, a training program that explores the strengths, the stakes, and the potential for change in the opera industry. The program aims at training young creators and performers to create collaborative and immersive operas, in a setting that favors intercultural dialogue and interdisciplinary exchange. By investigating innovative and creative processes, the program provides young artists with the opportunity to develop short-form performances and offers them an immersive experience in the public space.

The program will be led by Anthony Heidweiller, who regularly holds workshops on artistic projects with a participatory dimension.

“Why art?
To create a bridge between society and artists.
For a cosmopolitan society.” Anthony Heidweiller, 2019 Festival d’Aix

"Giving voice to people who don’t have a voice, looking for the silent voices, sharing new stories, addressing new audiences, bringing down the walls between performers and audiences, challenging the traditional artistic practices, exploring collaborative and spontaneous practices, challenging the hierarchy....” Anthony Heidweiller

 

TUTOR

Anthony Heidweiller — singer and artistic associated director of the Opera Forward Festival of Amsterdam

 

PARTICIPANTS

20 young composers, stage directors, singers and instrumentalists
from diverse artistic, sociocultural and geographical horizons

 

DESCRIPTION

• The 20 artists will be divided into artistic teams including a composer, a stage director, and performers (instrumentalists or singers). Certain teams may be asked to develop a project involving a group of amateur artists from the Passerelles department.
• By the end of the program, participants will produce 7- to 10-minute-long performancesboth collaborative and immersive, or even interactive – which will be presented in atypical venues not usually intended for live shows. These performances, to be shown in Aix en juin, as a prelude to the Festival d’Aix 2020, will be developed and composed for and in these spaces, based on interviews with leading figures linked to the venues. During the performances, the artistic teams will have no costumes, decors or technical support, and will perform while the spaces remain open for activity.
