The Polyphonic World Before We Were Born

OORT is an intimate sound experience that immerses you and three actors in sounds that we knew long before our first memories were formed.

Months before our birth, we encountered the world in the rustling and rumbling, beating and bubbling of the body that bore us and also in speech, laughter and song: a majestic, myriad, many-voiced mother-melody.

In OORT , three actors take you back to this sound setting. Discover all these sounds for yourself with your baby: you can hear them, and sometimes feel or see them as well. From these sounds music emerges, polyphonic and age-old, pure and stimulating.

OORT is an intimate theatre concert, a physical sound experience, that feels surprising, strange and familiar all at once.

Inspired by science, technology and Flemish polyphony.
