is an initiative of the musicians Kay Zhang, Léo Collin and Nuriia Khasenova...

Trained as classical/contemporary musicians, they interpret chamber or orchestra repertoire, composed by contemporary composers. They transcript, arrange, add visual elements and a storyline to make the score more accessible for a non specialist audience.
In their detalk series, they spend 3-4 days with a guest (composer, sound/visual artist). These collaborations have a very different and interesting outcome each time.
They make scenic compilations
of their own compositions.
For this, they work with different artists such as sound engineer Leandro Gianini,  solfware developper Dalius Singer, costume and stage designer Mariana Grünig Vieira, object designer Eric Larrieux, instrument designer and sound artist, Kaspar König, composer and performer Cimon Finix, Light designer Viktoras Žemeckas, architect and video game designer Adrian Galeazzi, singer and organiser Meret Roth, dramaturge Louise Décaillet to name a few...

They performed in Volksbühne Berlin, Gare du Nord Basel, Dampfzentrale Bern, Gessnerallee- Tonhalle- Das Institut -Walcheturm- Hyperlokal Zürich but also Monash University Melbourne, Potocki Paterson Art Gallery Wellington,  Maritime Museum Hong Kong, L’Abri Geneva, La Voirie Bienne ... Kollektiv international totem is supported by the City and the Canton of Zürich and many other foundations in Switzerland.


See, the whale  

a noeise production, with the participation of the ensemble tzara (Zürich)

"See the Whale!" is a monodrama for spoken voice, trumpet, saxophone, flute, double bass, and percussion. It is a collage of texts about people and whales - inspired by well-known stories such as Jonah and the Whale, Pinocchio, or Moby Dick - and is both a fictional story and a philosophical text. If you want to see whales, you have to look for signs. To practice listening and thus increase the chances of a whale sighting, there is a varied and exciting program on board. Our international crew will entertain you with live music, various shows, scientific explanations, and much more. For the whole family!
