Artistic workshops

Fontdouce offers a relaxing atmosphere. Artistic workshops are the opportunity to take a break from your everyday life while doing an activity that will calm your soul and body.

Individual work (vocal technique with the singing teacher, arrangement with the pianist, interpretation with both hosts during a master class) but also collective work (body and voice training, choir) will take place every day in the rooms of the abbey. 
At the end of the workshop, a representation will be held in the rooms of the abbey (Thursday, 9 July at 5PM).

Workshop "Medieval singing and body awareness"

This workshop will be hosted by Fabienne Cellier-Triguel, soprano, and Christine Wahl, dance and tai chi teacher. The theme is "Psoas and inner pilgrimage". The objective will be to explore the psoas through a varied repertoire: Gregorian chant, Cantigas de Santa Maria and Llibre Vermell. The psoas muscle is a vital, postural and spiritual intersection and it allows an inner pilgrimage through breathing, walking and singing.
At the end of the workshop, a representation  will take place in the rooms of the abbey (Friday, 23 October at 4PM).
