Zonzo Compagnie /

An intruiging musical performance about Johann Sebastian Bach for 6+ 

Zonzo Compagnie conquers the world with intriguing performances about the work of fascinating musicians and composers. Earlier on, the music of John Cage, Miles Davis and Luciano Berio were unpacked and tackled, now it's Bach's turn.

Bach is a monument. A wizard of sound and melody, a genius stringing together staggering fugues, preludes, chorals and partitas and who, 250 years after his death, still tops the charts.

In 3ACH, two violinists guide you through Bach's world. Together they weave Bach's melodies past unparalleled harmonies. In a multimedial musical performance, the audience is submerged in what many believe to be the most beautiful music ever written.

Bach for stamping feet

 
"Two violins, two video screens: this is all Zonzo Company needs to create pure musical wonder. (...) Question and answer, expectation and fulfilment. The beauty of Zonzo is that they let the music follow its own rules. Music is simply itself: a game of abstract sound associations."
 
Annemarie Peeters - De Standaard ****
 
 
Wandering through the corridors of the Bach building
 
"Bach has never rocked like this before. (...) The captivating violinists, the virtual element and of course the music, continue to enthral us and ensure that the performance does not get bogged down in a noncommittal sequence of images. 3ACH! is not a hollow plea for ‘more classical music for the young’. It is an immersive music-theatre trip for young and old; a perfect marriage between sound and image.(...) It is primarily a promising view of the future of multimedia music-theatre."
 
Simon Knaeps - Etcetera
