Clélia Colonna

Clélia Colonna (FR/AT) is a voice practitioner born in Paris. Her quest for forgotten sounds and harmonies led her from Corsican curvy roads (leading to singers in isolated villages) to Poland, Ukraine, Russia and Sicily where she met singers, musicians and collaborated with artists such as Natalka Polovynka, Sergei Kovalevitch, Bernardu Pazzoni… Through out the years and in the spirit of companionship, she learned traditional Corsican, Sicilian and Ukrainian polyphonic singing. Since 2006, she works as a performer and researcher in the field of voice. She worked with Georg Blaschke, Inferno/Ewa Bankowska, Jean-François Favreau, Philippe Genty, Peter Jakober, Raúl Maia, Ben J. Riepe, Charlotta Ruth.

She is initiator and coordinator of cowbirds, the projects Les Passeurs // *fish in search of water – in between tradition and fiction- and of the festival scaPes – sound&choregraphy.
She’s been teaching workshops on polyphonic singing since 2015 and has been vocally coaching the dancers of Cie Philippe. Genty on the creation of Land’s End.
