ME

I am an Artist

 

As a young artist, I am very interested in interdisciplinary forms of expression and I truly believe that classical music needs to become a popular art form accessible to everyone.

In my performances I make space for creativity and take the freedom to play with social and artistic topics that are precious to me. I like to thematise the polarity between different forms of dance, classical singing and visual elements.

SINGER

As a singer, I have a wide repertoire ranging from Baroque to Contemporary with a special love for the Lied art form.

The most important thing to me when I sing is to create a shared experience with the audience.

DANCER

Je suis danseuse

As a dancer, I have a classical and contemporary background, and I specialise in various African dance styles along with the Jamaican dance Dancehall. Most of my choreographies are a combination of all these dances, respecting the origins of each culture embedded within them.

The beauty of dance for me is how it allows us to step into a world devoid of words yet filled with so much more.
