The Groninger company Het Kanaal is a gang of hard-working creators. Because nothing kept them off the streets, they stayed there. In this cold landscape of concrete, asphalt and steel, these makers are a beacon of hope on this almost-decayed planet. Touched by the mystical and overwhelming power of Mother Nature, they make their way through the tumultuous life of the 21st century with their unique visual music theatre.
Het Kanaal comes to Simplon with a new experience: a musical comic strip. This performance will tell a story; not with words, but with images and music. During this performance, the members of the musical artists’ collective take you from far into the past to an image of the future. Experience a cosmic transformation that will change your worldview forever; an audiovisual journey through time and space. Become an astronaut on Earth and experience the depths of the universe and humanity.
Opening act Youki Flu (aka Austėja Žvirblytė) will take you on a journey too. Embark on a musical trip that will transport you to a world of boundless creativity, where the experience presented by the Rotterdam-based artist is filled with wonder and playfulness.
Youki Flu weaves a mesmerizing tapestry of enchanting and playful sounds. Through her ukulele bass, electronic instruments, and captivating vocals in a unique made-up language, she creates an imaginative fusion of dreamy hyperpop. Prepare to be delighted by the infectious melodies, whimsical voice improvisations, and joyful exploration of genres that define her captivating sound.
