CULTURAL ACTION & TRAINING
The Compagnie du Lamparo has begun since its creation a collecting work of popular cultures and a transmission work of the practice and knowledge linked with them. In the continuity of this background work, the company organises master classes, training courses and pedagogic workshops which are structured around the great number of issues approached in its work : vocality, modality, polyphony, relationship between the Mediterranean and the Occitan world, functionality of popular songs, relation between scholar and popular music, etc…
Collective singing workshops, open to “enlightened” amateurs and to professionals (singers, choir conductors) explore a great number of techniques (polyphony and popular voices, voice and speech, rhythm…)
Pedagogic workshops, destined to primary school, high school and college pupils consist of an introduction to polyphony and polyrhythm.
Master classes, dedicated to professional singers, or singers on the way to professionalization, offer the teaching and/or perfecting of vocal techniques specific to Occitan modality.
