What might the musical heritage of polyphony mean today? Myriam Van Imschoot was inspired by insects, climate marches and the recent protests against budget cuts in the arts and civil society. A group of Brussels-based singers takes to the stage with the vocal ensemble HYOID. United, they move through mass singing, often on the edge of audibility.

In Moving Ballads, Femke Gyselinck takes the word ‘ballad’ literally: it is a danced song. Inspired by folk legend Joni Mitchell, she invites you to explore the connections between the music, the words and the movements. Welcome to this no-man’s-land where movements do not speak.

Kyoko Scholiers had a telephone booth travel around for a year. She took it to prisoners, refugees, the homeless, prostitutes, patients, and the unlucky. During Misconnected, you enter the phonebooth yourself and you hear five-minute audio fragments. Just briefly, you witness the problems and complaints that one caller told Scholiers over the course of that year.

Daniel Linehan creates a choreography in which the lighting, the scenography, the costumes, the movement, and the music each dominate the stage in turn, and then fade to make space for the others. This constant cycle of emergence and disappearance creates an interplay in which unnoticed elements suddenly demand your attention, eliciting unsuspected moments of wonder.
