YOUYOUYOU - MARS
Myriam Van Imschoot & Youyou Group
KANAL-Centre Pompidou welcomes artist Myriam Van Imschoot and her successful creation YOUYOUYOU: a vocal performance around the art of Youyou or Zaghareet in Arabic, a loud ululation used as an expression of joy and festivity. The performance is called MARS and will take place on 24 April 2021.
MARS brings together 24 Youyou performers, separated but visible behind the showroom's large windows, for a concert that will be broadcast live on the street corner and pavement. The division between inside and outside disappears with the voices of the performers. At times barely audible, then very loud, they aim for an entente with the hustle and bustle of the city. A place to exist and be heard. MARS is a special festive edition of the show that has been performed since 2014 and marks the inauguration of a new, bigger YouYou group.
