Musical production on the music of American jazz legend and trumpet player Miles Davis.
Three Belgian musicians - Bert, Fulco, and Simon - lead the listener into the fascinating world of Miles Davis. His innovative and adventurous approach to music is the starting point of the production, from where the paths branch into a maze of ever-changing moods. Several roles and situations open up for the audience: you can end up making music on stage yourself, or instead find yourself in a creative sound studio; the next moment someone has to create a new soundtrack for the film or end up in the painting studio of a famous artist.
Mile(s)tones was nominated for The Young Audiences Music Awards in 2013.
