docARTES PhD students performing at Miry ConcertzaalNews September 26, 2019
docARTES students Nadav Katan, Filipa Botelho (with ensemble) and Jasmijn Lootens (with ensemble) will be performing at Miry Concertzaal in Ghent in the new cultural season.
10 October 2019, 20.00
Orpheus Institute PhD candidate Nadav Katan’s recital centres on the poet more than the composer. This young Israeli pianist celebrates a romantic fascination with the word. Arrangements of imaginative arias from German song and opera, including Orpheo & Euridice, Widmung and Gretchen am Spinnrade set the pace. While the song melodies are in the higher piano regions, with Chopin and Schumann, the unification of words and music is immediate. Schumann's poetic ‘Der Dichter Spricht’ is the ideal ending to a lyrical evening.
Down The Rabbit Hole (Filipa Botelho)
3 April 2020, 20.00
The Down the Rabbit Hole collective presents Screening, a performance uniquely intertwining visual and auditive elements. Alexander Schubert’s Hello begins as a YouTube tutorial for performers and ends as a symphonic game. Rama Gottfried's handmade puppets are brought to life by the eye of a camera. Frédéric Verrières leads us step by step through a cinematic sequence where image, movement and sound become a complex assemblage.

MIRY is devoted to young talent, offering young musicians professional stage experience, including its Young Artist In Residence programme, where artists can freely evolve. The contemporary music scene in Flanders needs a lively, creative, experimental underground scene with space to reinvent everything anew, engage in exciting musical alliances, let imaginations roam, seek refreshing cross-pollinations or, if needed, let a young musician make mistakes.
