The present in art

Interview with Maciej Straburzynski, singer since his childhood in Poland, keen on literature, a singer having fun in refreshing and sincere experiences.   How did you decide to become a singer? It was very easy because I was singing when I was a kid. At 7 I started to learn singing, then at 9 I started to sing in a choir and I became a soloist very quickly. I treated it as a hobby but also as a kind of job. My voice changed when I was 12 or 13 but I still kept singing as a bass in a choir. It was very natural, I was just singing my all life. So it was not a very big decision, it ...

Between countries

Interview with Tiemo Wang, baritone who felt in love with the violin at 6, decided to sing at 30 and began to understand his Chinese grandfather’s journey a few months ago, thanks to Daral Shaga.   How did you decide to become a singer? I started as a violinist. I had never sung, I had never listened to singers, only violin, it was the one thing I really loved the most. I remember, as a child, I didn’t like singing, because it sounds like shouting, like crying, isn’t it? It’s a bit weird; it’s loud, emotional, touching. Maybe for children it’s too much because there is so ...

It matters

Interview with Michaela Riener, a young mezzosoprano from Austria, singing to make things coming out of her heart.   How did you decide to become a singer? I started studying as a music teacher, I was a pianist actually in Vienna. I wanted to do a year somewhere, outside the piano. I was already singing, and started “singing pedagogies”. Then I came to the Hague for one year initially, I discovered “early music” there. I was still studying piano and wondering whether it was the right thing for me. I did the entrance exam and they took me, so it was decided then! I stayed in the ...

Base Plume

Interview with Mark Pieklo, Laura Smith’s partner at the Korean cradle, Hawaiian with polish roots who dreamt to be a juggler before becoming a cradle base.   How did you begin circus? I started juggling as a leisure when I was in high school and at university studying maths. Then I realised I loved circus a thousand times more than maths. And I enter the ENC in Montreal, thinking I would become a juggler. But during the first year, you learn different disciplines and I discovered the base part. When you are a juggler, you are alone, nobody cares for you. The aerial disciplines ...

Something human

Interview with Renata do Val, Brazilian artist trained at le Lido (Toulouse). Exiled, traveller, with her smile, her parka and her ukulele as basic luggage.   How did you begin circus? I was 16 when I started. I don’t know why. I used to climb, I loved doing things with my body. Circus, it was fun, without competition but with an artistic dimension. After high school, I had to decide what to do with my life. I went to a circus school in Sao Paolo which didn’t really match with my expectations, so I studied architecture keeping on training every morning. In circus, there is ...

Taking flight

Interview with Laura Smith, first of the duo Pieklo/Smith, flyer happy to reconnect with the Korean cradle and to combine it with the trampoline.   How did you begin circus? I started circus during my last year at McGill University in Montreal. I was having lessons of swinging trapeze, lessons at the ENC and trampoline. It was a kind of recreation after my lessons of mechanical engineer. I was dreaming to become an acrobat and to perform for an audience, I was more at ease in this world than in the engineering one. I was both looking for a job in aeronautics and training for the ...

Working on injustice

Interview with Anke Bucher, generous and dynamic acrobat, who is collaborating for the third time with Feria Musica.   How did you begin circus? I’ve always needed to move! I discovered circus thanks to a friend in Germany. And then, when I looked for a school, I didn’t want something traditional and I wanted to speak French. The training at the ESAC has changed a lot of things for me. I was already focused on technique, I like the control of the body, the confrontation with pain fascinates me. I am one of those people who go beyond their limit, and circus is not an activity ...

Into music

Interview with Lode Vercampt, multi-instrument musician, cellist from Gent, raised in the middle of violins, pianos, accordions, singing and poetry, where music never stops.   What prompted you to play music? My parents! I started playing the piano at the age of 3. Then my father gave me a small cello when I was 5. And it was on, I’ve always found it easy to play, it has always been a pleasure. There was a piano at home. I have three older sisters, they all played music. Gudrun plays the piano, the violin and she signs. Kathleen plays the violin. Nele plays the piano. I’ve always ...

Finding the shades

Interview with Emily Brassier, light designer with a pronounced passion for teamwork. She tells that Daral Shaga might have enriched her professional experience, and touched her through its way to bring the migrants journey closer to our own reality.   Can you talk about your personal journey? I come from plastic arts, I studied fine arts in Rennes, where I have always worked on light sets. Naturally, I’ve ended in the theatre field, to work more professionally, with teams, on more ambitious and alive projects. I got specialised in lighting, through a 3 years training at the Théâtre ...

One thing leading to another

Interview with Giacinto Caponio, video designer, working in close relation with Fabrice Murgia for several years. Accomplice, and unbiased.     Can you talk about your personal journey? I started working in the medical field. And, by chance, on the net, I discovered that I could work as a technician for performing arts. I looked for schools and I found la Fabrique de theatre, in la Bouverie, that offers evening classes of stage management, and, you also learn about production, scenography, administration. As a DJ, I had a basic understanding of sound and lights. This knowledge ...
