Art, history, conferences
Fabrice Roy, speaker
The most difficult in this site, as in life, is to talk about yourself. Of course, I could commit a neat biography, something clean and crisp, with paragraphs, dashes, semicolons where needed.
For those who are interested, it's here
But for this page, I prefer to involve you in some of my main passions!
Interventions, courses, conferences ... I like to transmit and share all that my professional and artistic lives have brought me. My approach is immersive, through a permanent exchange, a playful form, a constant balance between theory and practice. And this for all audiences, whether they are students, professionals or simply amateurs of the subjects covered ...
My parents, lyric artists, who took me for the first time to the Opéra Garnier when I was 6 years old.
The piano, with lessons from Miss Slomsczinska, Jeanne and Paulette. Two sisters, old Polish girls, who made me love Chopin obviously, without transition, just after the Rose method and the four-handed Enkhausen.
(At the piano- Evening of the Lions-Club of Noisy-le-Roi Bailly. Yvelines 2009)
Rediscovered fifteen years ago, worked with Patricia Samuel and in Masterclass with Anna-Maria Miranda, Michel Piquemal and Clémence Tilquin.
Singing, within the Regional Choir Vittoria d'Ile de France and the Southern Region Symphonic Choir - Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur, of which I have the honor to be the President since October 2016.
(With Marie-Caroline Kfouri in recital in Nice - 2018)
Passion for writing, directing and acting. The production of more than 12 shows. " Waltz ", an operetta performed by more than 100 choristers, instrumentalists and dancers in the large UNESCO auditorium. The creation of two pieces, " Une nuit en Forêt de Cruye " and " Impressionnistes ". Then, it was "Resistance", written and performed at the Montensier theater in Versailles with the assistance of the French Army Choir under the direction of Aurore Tillac.
With a predilection for the Impressionists and Claude Monet to whom I devoted a piece on his friendship with Georges Clemenceau. Orsay, Marmottan, the Musée des Impressionnismes in Giverny and naturally the Orangerie des Tuileries regularly see me walking through their galleries, as if I were meeting old friends there ...
(In the company of Christian Bouillette, alias Claude Monet and Jean-Gabriel Nordmann, alias Georges Clemenceau for the premiere of my play "Monet-Clemenceau: une friendship" at the Orangerie des Tuileries 2014)
History and Literature
Poems, essays, novels, conferences, everything is a pretext to practice these two disciplines. My favorite periods? Ancient Egypt, the 16th century, the enlightenment and the revolution, then the nineteenth century with a soft spot for Napoleon the third, which Philippe Seguin introduced me to.
My favorite piece? Cyrano de Bergerac!
Fine Arts in Nice
The discovery of the Museum of Fine Arts in Nice was a revelation for me. In September 2022, first interview with its dynamic director Johanne Lindskog, then, very quickly, the creation in April 2023 of theSociety of Friends of the Museum of Fine Arts of Nice (S.AM.BAN), of which I have the honor of being the first president.
