manyfold, meditative, monstrous, machinic, messianic, mimetic, mesmerizing, minuscule, mighty, methodical, momentary, mystical.

Inspired by insects, climate marches and airplane traffic coming to a halt, the leitmotif in this concert/performance is not the loud collective chant, but the experience that each individual – like a link in a chain – can set a vortex of sounds in motion. In newpolyphonies, four singers of HYOID join forces with 15 performers in a curious high mass about little differences with big impact.

• Myriam Van Imschoot makes performances and creates sound poetry, vocal pieces, video and sound installations. She has presented various projects at Kaaitheater, such as What Nature Says and IN KOOR!. The vocal ensemble HYOID is not afraid to question traditional concert formats.
