Paris Season   2017 / 2018
Professional Workshop

Paris - Studio DTM. 4 weeks intensive. Oct. 16 to Nov. 10.

Voice performance
training involves a dynamic blend of technical finesse and expressive risk. It seeks the affirmation of personal genius - character and musicality, within a choreographic theatre.

The notion of genius will be one of this year's main themes. It includes daimons and demons.

2 performances:
The Black Box, by Daniela Molina with Pierre-François Blanchard (Oct. 24)
Long titled great solo, by Hélène Larrodé (Oct 27)

2 lectures by Anna Griève on Women and Demons, and the Saturday Night myth of Melusine.

In soul and rock music, the chorus spirits of vodou are never far away.

Symposium Laboratory

Both a banquet of ideas (symposium) and a poetic factory (laboratory). To reflect & work with the couplings above : paradoxical duos, sometimes complementary, sometimes antonyms; often duplicitous, at times accomplices; fake twins, false brothers; sometimes betrayers. Potentially the most creative in teaching and in performance.
April 24 - May 1st at Malerargues.




University of Central Lancashire, has awarded Enrique an Honorary Fellowship FHEA and, with Dr Amy Rome, is planning an international conference with laboratories and performances.

Enrique will present a keynote lecture and partake in talks, workshops and performances.
