Polyphonic and a capella singing
Music - Theatre - Producer / Broadcaster
Voix Polyphoniques is a professional musical theatre company directed by the singer and actress Brigitte Cirla. The company writes, produces and performs shows centred on the voice, in particular polyphonic songs from all over the world and has been performing for 25 years.
Its three guiding principles are:
- Writing and producing musical theatre shows with a repertoire inspired by vocal and a cappella traditions and contemporary writing and music.
- Exploring the voice through practical workshops for amateurs, pros, school children, students and in specific environments (hospitals, prisons etc.) Voix Polyphoniques does not pretend to be a school, but does adopt an approach to the voice and the body through different initiatives linked to performance and representation.
- Inter-cultural exchange with a variety of different European and international networks. In1983, Voix Polyphoniques became one of the founder members of The Magdalena Project – an international network of women working in live performance.
