Born 1969 in Ghent/Belgium.

Myriam Van Imschoot studied German and dance theory at the KU Leuven University in Belgium. After her studies she joined several artistic projects, including works with Meg Stuart, Benoît Lachambre and Philipp Gehmacher.

For her own work she combines writing, performance and visual art. Part of her various projects are performances such as Pick Up Voices, Kaaitheater in Brussels/Belgium (2008), sound installations like Black Box (2009) or vocal performances at the Vozes de Magiao festival, Binaural Nodar/Portugal (2011).

Her work has been presented internationally in theatres and gallery spaces like the Jan van Eyck Academie, the Arts Centers Buda, Stuk and Vooruit, the Sculpture International Rotterdam organization and the MUU Galeria in Helsinki/Finland. She is the founder of the network Sarma, which recently developed Oral Site (2012), a software for spoken word and experimental writing with a focus on orality.
Currently, Myriam Van Imschoot is working on a series that deals with long distance communications and gestures (whistling, yodeling, calling out) as a way to make the near and the distant collapse into new possibilities of synchronicity and spatial relationality.
