Period of the EOA module in 2020-2021

  • August 31st– December 19th 2020

Open for

  • 1 or 3 vocal students

In this module, the singer students explore how working in other venues and spaces than the opera theatre  influence the music-dramatic expression. The students, together with a stage director, take an active part in deciding how to use the available spaces and how to place the audience  in the chosen space. 

The module contains singing lessons as well as musical interpretation sessions.

The students work on selected scenes with a stage director, and bring their work into the  chosen venue, and stage a performance for a small audience. Recently the venue has been the “Reactor Hall” of the Stockholm institute of Technology, an exciting underground former nuclear reactor plant, now a cultural venue for the Institute of Technology.

The students will also explore how voice and architecture interact and create new auditive spaces for the performer and the audience.

The module will also include a concert in December, on stage at Hugoteatern, the studio theatre of the school.
