Elizabeth Lima

Creator / Performer

Originally from Quebec City, Elizabeth Lima performs as an improviser, clarinettist and singer in a multitude of genres. Her practice revolves around two main poles: the emotional response to sound as well as the complex human relationships developed between musicians and spectators. Her performances seek to create a meeting between traditional instrumental techniques and exploratory ones, combined with performance and theatrical elements. She is interested in both ancient and contemporary music. She honed her vocal skills with Maggie Nicols and Phil Minton (UK) in 2016. Elizabeth regularly performs as a soloist and as a member of the ensemble GGRIL (Rimouski), the duo Framboos (Montréal-Québec) and Joker, a sounding choir under the direction of Joane Hêtu (Montreal). She was also part of the Ample collective and the ensemble Kô. She also offers vocal improvisation workshops to musicians and non-musicians.
