Mezzo-soprano and core company member of Peeping Tom Eurudike De Beul delivers a special vocal performance to kick-off the Melbourne Festival program at MPavilion.
After her master in biomedical research, Eurudike De Beul obtained the first price opera and a higher diploma with felicitations of the jury in Mons and Liège. As a soprano she sang several years oratorio and baroque repertoire. During this time she combined singing with wildlife illustrating for magazines and working with disabled people. Due to more important stage work and body research her voice grew into a colour which fits heavier mezzo roles.
Since 1995 she has been touring internationally with contemporary music and dance theatre companies such as les ballets C de la B, Peeping Tom, Theatre Cryptic, and Theatercompagnie Amsterdam. She is the artist in residence in Walpurgis and the city of Sint-Niklaas, where she creates her own multimedia work, experimental voice work and compositions in cooperation with her company KoudVuur (Liederen van de Dood, Penelope, Till we meet again Mother, a production about the first world war that will run until 2018).
Eurudike gives workshops dynamic body and voice training to singers and performers in Europe and abroad. She is especially interested in the relation between the breath and the functioning of the brain.
