In MILE(S)TONES, a percussionist, a pianist and a trumpet player guide you into the fascinating world of the legendary American jazz composer and trumpet player Miles Davis. His adventurous, innovative approach to music is the production's starting point, leading you into a labyrinth of ever-changing spaces and moods. One moment, you may find yourself in the vibrant creativity of a recording studio, or on stage as one of the musicians; the next moment, you're creating a live soundtrack to a movie or you're in the celebrated musician's painting studio.
 
In MILE(S)TONES, you will experience the endless, fantastic possibilities of improvised music through the compositions of Miles Davis, with Fulco Ottervanger, Simon Segers, and trumpet player Bert Bernaerts, members of the Ghent jazz ensemble De Beren Gieren, as the ideal guides.
 
MILE(S)TONES is a Zonzo Compagnie production in co-production with De Beren vzw, Centro Cultural de Belém, De Werf Arts Centre, Rataplan Arts Centre and Jeunesses Musicales Flanders.
