ART, RESEARCH, THEORY
Field Trip # 15 with Kirsten Schötteldreier
“I started by singing in jazz formations, rock bands and as a studio singer. In my personal search for ever deeper musical layers, I began to study singing and direction at the Folkwang Conservatory in Essen, Germany. Being interested in more art forms than just opera, I chose to study in Essen where Pina Bausch was teaching young dancers, and were actors, singers and dancers were all being trained under the same roof. Moving to The Netherlands I sang more and more in modern pieces, including opera on location and in the theatre. I also participated in dance performances and started to make my own pieces like 'Lost Land', 'Verdriet', 'Closed' and 'Grenzgebiete'. These are pieces mainly about loosing home-ground due to war, political changes and globalization. After a period of health issues that affected my voice, I began attending Chi Kung classes in Malaysia, Germany and Russia. Chi Kung has become an important part of the voice training that I now offer and I use it with singers all over Europe in order to improve and stabilize a ‘high level’ and more authentic way of singing. In the last years I advice and work more and more in Opera, Theatre and Dansproductions for houses like o.a.Staatsoper Wien München , Berlin , Paris , Theater an der Wien ( Coach Young Ensemble ) & Bayreuther Festspiele to create a good balance between the vocal, scenic and musical needs of each production. ”
