Roderik Povel - 29 July & 7 August

His versatile work includes recordings of 20th century songs, jazz and Gregorian music (with Schola Maastricht), but also solo vocal pieces and poetry readings. In addition, he makes musical theater and audio tours. In 2018, Roderik presented two sensory trainings for Marres, one about the voice, the other about silence. During this session, he will focus on the topics from the exhibition Yes, Please! with voice practices, breathing techniques and the resonance of physical reflexes.
