Bye bye 2016 with Make Up Video

Hi friends,

this is a fast forward Make Up preparation for me as Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia. Some close friends asked for it, so there it is!
I have been performing for 2 and a half months already, 4 shows per week. I am very grateful for this experience, I learned a looooot.
New shows to be announced soon!

I will not wish you happiness, because happiness is a choice. That is my resolution.

I wish you health from the bottom of my heart, to you and your dear ones!

Happy 2017!

1-DSC_0025_2

I am most glad to announce our recital “Apparition” on the 29th of April at 20.00 with Rémy Dechambre! Join us for an evening that visits from fragile Mimì and femme fatale Norina to Debussy’s reveries and Bernstein’s 10-year-old thoughts…and many more! All these in a warm and cozy place, Art Base in Brussels. Our program owes its name to a poem by Mallarmé we both love and which immediately enchanted us…

Tickets available here !

Feel free to share this event with your friends.
Take care and enjoy spring!

Opera Project in two days

So, in two days at the Koninklijk Conservatorium of Brussels (Kleine Zavel) at 12.30 (free entrance) you can enjoy scenes from Le Nozze Di Figaro and Idomeneo by W.A.Mozart played by the students. On piano Mr.Jan Vande Weghe and on direction Mrs.Maja Jantar.
I play Ilia, the persian princess, now a prisoner in Creta, after the Trojan war, who falls in love with the enemy, the Greek prince Idamante. I had a great time preparing this role, not only because of the beautiful music and lyrics written, but also because Maja gave to the team an amazingly large amount of creative possibilities through body and voice improvisation. We worked together for 2 weeks, 5,5 hours every day and I will surely miss it after this Friday. So, see you there on Friday! 😉

PS. Some pics from the rehearsal’s in my Tarja Turunen style coat! Hell yeah!!!
And of course, one family photo!

cou cou update!

After some fairytale days in Paris which stirrrrred my imagination and some crazy scheduled rehearsals in Antwerp which interestingly enough tested my physical strength, now Brrrrrussels, back to base – as stable as that can be, finishing my new book which is going to be a cocktail of poetry, photography, drawings and short stories… Typing next to the flowers from yesterday’s concert. Thank you Stadsschouwburg Sint-Niklaas for a warm applause and for embracing our musical enthusiasm!

In the meantime, this week I am meeting some exceptionally talented people for a new project for which I will be announcing news soon.
Until then, have nice, warrrrm days and take care!
PS. I visited Morrison’ s  last house at Père Lachaise, thank god you can still have a little something or nothing from him!
