BIG BANG Enschede 2017
The first Dutch editon of the international BIG BANG festival comes to Enschede.
Wilminktheatre and Muziekcentrum Enschede organize it in coproduction with Zonzo Compagnie, Kaliber, Cultuurmenu Concordia, 4Oost and Enschede Promotie - the first coproduction of BIG BANG in The Netherlands.The BIG BANG festival is a festive tribute to adventurous sound art and music-making for children and was crowned earlier this year with the prestigious EFFE festival award for best festival in Europe! It began more than twenty years ago with the OORSMEER festival in Ghent. The labyrinthine Vooruit building in Ghent was filled to capacity with adventurous musicians and sound installations. A large young audience witnessed the resounding launch. OORSMEER was the beginning of a new chapter in the musical landscape for children. Twenty years later, and under its new name BIG BANG, OORSMEER has conquered the world from Hamburg to Lisbon, from Ghent to Sao Paulo, from Athens to Seville, from Antwerp to Stavanger and from Brussels to Lille.
One of the yearly components is the Willem Wilminck Prize for best Childrens' Song. The issue of the prize will take place during BIG BANG on February 11th 2017.
