What Nature Says

Myriam Van Imschoot
11, 12 September 19.00, Dirty Deal Teatro, Talsu st. 1 | Sold out

What does nature say? To find out, Myriam Van Imschoot visited a zoo, used a tuning fork to listen to a motorway, discovered birds that sound like chainsaws or can imitate the ringtones of mobile phones, and saw crocodiles in Australia (but couldn’t hear them…).
Drawing on a variety of field recordings, five performers – coming from the noise-underground scene to pop – replicate these various sounds, using only their voices. In front of audience they create an a cappella rendition of the planet’s soundscapes and what is too often simply the white-noise of the world.
What Nature Says is a radiophonic performance, a show in which our notions of humanity, nature and machines are called into question.

About the artist

Flemish artist Myriam Van Imschoot makes performances, creates sound poetry and vocal pieces, exhibits video and sound installations. She holds a unique position in the Belgian art field, moving between institutional fields and media, with a keen interest to experiment with contexts when not creating her own. Myriam Van Imschoot’s intermedial approach is based on gestures, phenomena, and voices that have been lost or remain unnoticed.
