Océane Deweirder is a French high mezzo soprano, interpreter of the lyric repertoire and creator of transdisciplinary performances around the opera voice.
Having the opera voice as a center and dance and drama as branches, Océane comes from a versatile and european background which she induces in her performing commitment.
She graduated from a Masters in Singing at Royal Academy of Music in 2020 and then specialised for two years in the baroque repertoire along Stéphane Fuget in the Baroque opera course of the Paris Regional Conservatoire.
Her training also includes studying under Jean-Laurent Cochet in his professional drama course; under prima ballerina Marga Nativo and choreographer Keith Ferrone as a Bachelor in Dance alumni of the Florence Dance Center (It); and under writter and musicologist Rodolfo Tommasi in Philosophy of Arts and Languages at the Accademia Europea di Firenze (Florence, It).
Active in the baroque, classical, romantic and contemporary repertoires, Océane has performed as a soloist in operas or concerts in France (Opéra royal de Versailles, Chapelle royale, Festival Embaroquement immédiat...), in London (Susie Sainsbury Theatre), Florence (Palazzo Pitti), Berlin (Berlin Opera Festival) and Helsinki (Musiikitalo).
More recently, she has been working with ensembles such as Ensemble Matheus - Jean-Christophe Spinosi, Les Epopées - Stéphane Fuget and Stylus Luxurians - Galel Sanchez & Maud Sinda.
On the contemporary side, she likes working along young composers (Benjamin Scheuer, James Batty, Electra Perivolaris…), for the research possibilities and collaboration this type of work reprensents. She has created pieces for composers at venues such as Sound & Vision London Festival, Aix-en-Provence June Festival and Helsinki's SibaFest.
While nurturing her activity as an opera singer, Océane creates pluridisciplinary projects biding movement, drama and opera singing (Aria, Blind spots...) in France and Europe. From 2023, she has started to work as an opera stage director in this direction (La colombe de Bouddha, Reynaldo Hahn by la Cie Conteurs lyriques ; La magia delusa by Antonio Bertaly, at the Early Music Festival of la Roya).
Future projects : pianoforte & voice concert around 'Notes sur la mélodie des choses' by Rilke, alongside pianofortist Gabrielle Resche at Bach Academy; creation of a dance singing performance alongside composer Patrick-Atsrid Défossez ; coming back to 2024 Early music festival of la Roya as opera singer and stage director.
