newpolyphonies - Myriam Van Imschoot & HYOID

maa 06/07/2020 > maa 13/07/2020

For newpolyphonies, Myriam Van Imschoot was inspired by insects, climate marches and the recent manifestations against cutbacks in the arts and civil society. The guiding principle is not the loud chanting of the crowd, but the experience that each individual - like a link in chain - can set a vortex of sounds in motion.

Polyphony is the art of individual voices interwoven into a great harmonic coherence. In newpolyphonies, polyphony is both the trigger and the question. How can we understand this musical legacy today? What is the potential of harmony? A group of local participants perform on stage together with the vocal ensemble HYOID. Together, they engage in mass singing, often on the verge of audibility. newpolyphonies is a curious high mass about the small difference that makes a big impact.
