Equilibrium Young Artists met in November for an intensive week to prepare for concerts in the coming season. Stage director Linus Fellbom also joined the artists for staging rehearsals of The Rake's Progress.
In-depth workshops form a key part of the Equilibrium experience, with the purpose of fostering a culture of awareness of the complete musical picture. Workshops address preparation, stamina, focus, mistake recovery and peak performance. This is done through yoga exercises with Phyllis Ferwerda, and meditation and breath techniques developed by author, entrepreneur and maverick life coach, Jackie Reardon of Friendly Eyes.
Le Cent Quatre Paris generously offered their beautiful and unique space for all of the rehearsals and workshops.
