Recently graduated from a Master in Vocal at Royal Academy of Music, Océane Deweirder is a French high mezzo soprano, both active as interpreter of the lyric repertoire and transdisciplinary creativity around the opera voice.
While working in the baroque, classical and romantic repertoires, she collaborates with numerous international composers (Benjamin Scheuer, James Batty, Electra Perivolaris…). In September 2020, she entered the baroque opera course of the Paris Regional Conservatoire (direction Stéphane Fuget), in order to further her skills in this particular repertoire.
At 18, she started a european trip which led her to build her vocal and stage craft along different teachers (Regina Werner Dietrich in Leipzig, Pascale Reynaud in Lyon, Mary Hill and Sophie Daneman in London) and schools (Accademia europea di Firenze, Conservatoire de Bordeaux, London Associated Studios…) before entering the Royal Academy of Music where she studied with Raymond Connell, Marcus van den Akker and Jonathan Papp. Her vocal path got enhanced by an important work in the fields of drama (Jean-Laurent Cochet drama school) and dance (ballet, contemporary, choreography at the Florence Dance Center, Italy), leading to strong pluridisciplinary skills she is willing to offer for many productions and creations.
She also studied Philosophy of Arts and Languages along the italian writer Rodolfo Tommasi in Florence.
Her opera performances include La Nymphe de la Seine/Elise (Ariane & Bacchus, M. Marais) at Château de Versailles & Paris CRR; Ottone (L'Incoronazione di Poppea) at the Berlin Opera Academy Festival ; Seconda Sirena (Magiche Rime Arcane -creation-, Pietro Rigacci) at Palazzo Pitti in Florence ; Hänsel (Hänsel und Gretel - scenes) at Susie Sainsbury Theatre in London (Royal Academy of Music) ; or the co-creation of Jeunesse at the Aix-en-Provence festival Academy with composer Benjamin Scheuer and stage director Elise Boch.
Future projects include singing Nisa (La Morte d'Orfeo, S. Landi) under Stéphane Fuget's direction with the Paris CRR. Océane is also leading a creative research with the Royal Academy of Music around opera choreographed. The first part of this project will be presented at the SibaFest of the Sibelius Academy (Helsinki) in February 2022.
