An organisation by Dienst Nederlandse Cultuur van de Gemeente Schaarbeek

Text by curator, Paul-Alexander Crop:

De Brusilia is een woontoren van 100m hoog met 36 verdiepingen, die begin jaren ‘70 op de plek van het vroegere Sportpaleis gebouwd werd naar de plannen van architect Jacques Cuisinier, ook bekend van de Martini-toren en het Muntcentrum. Oorspronkelijk zou het complex uit drie torens van100 meterbestaan. Hiervan is uiteindelijk slechts één toren gebouwd. In 2011 startte de aanbouw van Brusilia 2, die maar 9 verdiepingen telt.

Op dinsdag 12 februari  organiseert de Dienst Nederlandse Cultuur i.s.m. Paul-Alexander Crop, Brusilialiefhebber én –bewoner een thema-avond rond dit fascinerende staaltje architectuur. In het nabij gelegen Espace Scarabeus nemen o.a. Leo van Broeck (gerenommeerde stem in het hoogbouw – debat en verbonden aan de KUL als ingenieur architect), Sven Stercken (ingenieur architect, verbonden aan Sint Lucas en één van de voortrekkers van Docomomo, een organisatie die zich inzet voor het behoud van de gebouwen van het modernistische era), Jens Aerts (ingenieur architect en stedenbouwkundige met Brusselexpertise, nu verbonden aan de VUB) en Eric de Kuyper (cineast en auteur met een voorliefde voor Brussel) het woord. Gui Polspoel, die voor zijn mediacarrière een opleiding ingenieur architect volgde en tevens ex-Brusiliabewoner, modereert. Daarnaast worden twee korte poëtische films van kunstenares Myriam Van Imschoot vertoond die intrigerend beeldend werk maakte rond de Brusilia, waar zij zelf ook woont. Nadien volgt een drink in een appartement op de 32ste verdieping van de Brusiliatoren.

28 AUGUST 2013 — FAREWELL PERFORMANCE OF HOLA HU AT RUMPSTI PUMSTI (MUSIK)

Dear friends,

I kindly invite you to attend the private performance that I will give with Doreen Kutzke at the Rumpsti Pumsti (Musik) gallery in Berlin on 28th August. We will perform Hola Hu, a vocal piece that embraces yodeling as a point of departure for a deconstructive treat.

Rumpsti Pumsti (Musik) is a label, mailorder shop and gallery specialized in sound art, experimental music and spoken word. The performance of Hola Hu will be the ‘farewell act’ at the Weserstrasse 165 in Neuköln, as the gallery is moving out to a new location from 7 september onwards.

Doors open at 6 pm.
Entrance: 3 euro.
Be welcome,

Myriam Van Imschoot

END OF SEASON

Last season was concluded with co-directing The Search Project XL for Tristero. This clip may give you an impression of this lustrous edition, including 43 people on stage. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd2Hv–MDvo

 

THE SEARCH PROJECT XL AT KAAITHEATER, 15 JUNE 2013

The Search Project XL

On Saturday 15 June 2013 a special edition of The Search Project (2010) will be presented in Kaaitheater with an extra large cast of 45 people, including many personnel of the Kaaitheater. I am directing the piece with Tristero, a theater collective based in Brussels. The piece is entirely based on classifieds. Everybody is looking for something…

The right shoes

I’m looking for Korean students and other students around the world who want to learn english via Skype. IELTS,TOEIC, TOEFL, basic english or whatever you want to know about english. English is fun. Mae.

Can you help me? I’m looking for a movie where scorpions are killing a lady, but that’s all I remember. Anyone?

Although wishes and desires are sometimes difficult to express in words, everyone still translates them into an actual quest. This quest can last a lifetime (in search of happiness) or a few hours (searching for the right shoes). In this performance – based on found ‘classified ads’ – Tristero attempts to bring this universal quest to light. Man is truly searching for all sorts of things: friendship and sex, but also work, collectables, missing animals and so on. A wanted ads page is therefore also an ‘open forum’ in which everyone wants to change their life and have their say.

cast Simon André, Tierno Barry, Lara Barsacq, Annelore Crollet, Youri Dirkx, Lorenza Goos, Pierre Sartenaer, Nele Van den Broeck, Iris Bouché, Hilde Wils, personnel of Kaaitheater and a tango orchestra.

UPCOMING PREMIERE OF MUSICAL COMPOSITION ‘HOLA HU’ AT DE PLAYER DURING OPERA DAYS ROTTERDAM: 31 MAY 2013

Yodel event De Player

Int the frame of the Opera Days Rotterdam, De Player is organizing a yodel event featuring screenings, readings and concerts. In this context a first version of ‘Hola Hu’ will première, a composition for two unisono voices that deconstruct a yodel to its micro-elements. ‘Hola Hu’ is the first vocal sound piece that Myriam Van Imschoot composed as a hommage for her yodel teacher and singer Doreen Kutzke.

Hola Hu is part of a longer series of related works in which Van Imschoot explores the voice phenomena of yodeling, crying, ululation and other forms of communication that bridge distance.

Vozes de Magaio (all the calls) on French radio!

 

102 RUE D’Alembert is organizing listening sessions. One work that I made with the documentation material of the vocal performance Vozes de Magaio is on the playlist!

Bruit de la Bande : Voix parlées, voix chantées, voix bruitées
Séance d’écoute
Le Bruit de la Bande est un rendez-vous d’écoute trimestriel.

Qu’elle soit parole ou pur matériau sonore, la voix se situe au cœur de cette soirée. La voix, au travers d’un panel d’œuvres où elle prend forme dans tous ses états, en tant que mots, chants, raclements, cris, grognements, souffles, sons… Comme dirait Hugo Ball : « Jolifanto ô falli bambla, grossiga m’pfa habla horem »

Pour cette séance d’écoute deux animatrices radio aiguilleront les auditeurs tout au long de ce parcours éclétique dans les sons de la voix qui parle, qui bruite, qui chante.
Nous donnerons à entendre de nombreux auteurs (Mike Patton, Alessandro Bosetti, Robert Aschley, Michel Collet, Christophe Tarkos, Radio Free robots, Myriam Van Imshoot…)
Nous flirterons avec la poésie sonore, avec la musicalité du langage et avec la voix pure matière….

Ce programme diffusé et enregistré en direct sera ensuite rediffusé en différé sur Radio Grésivaudan le 22 avril dans l’émission Chocolat 9 CH.
http://www.radio-gresivaudan.org et sur les ondes 87.8/89/92.4FM
