NKK NXT & Rosa Ensemble

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

The singers of NKK NXT, the talent development programme of the Nederlands Kamerkoor, together with the Rosa Ensemble, present the programme Minaminotori, a choreography for eight singers and tape recorders. Minaminotori is a musical expedition into our desires and ideals, and the impossible sacrifices we have to make to achieve them.

Minaminotori was created partly on the basis of play exercises, conversations and musical improvisations with the singers of NKK NXT. The audience sits on the stage, in the middle of a surround set-up and within touching distance of the singers, who sometimes operate devices, as technicians, then join each other in song, or in choreography, with loud electronic beats and multicoloured voices, descending into a Babylonian frenzy until nothing is left except the sound of the wind…
