BIG BANG Ghent 2016

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.
 
Zonzo Compagnie is the driving force behind BIG BANG. It ensures that hundreds of artists find a new audience, all over the world. Each year 40,000 children and their parents attend the festival and discover the richness and diversity of the world of music and sounds. This year also, we are letting our hair down on three BIG BANG festivals in November. We will be treating you to an adventurous trip past windmills, pneumaphonics, rhytmical bouncing balls and many delightful, unforgettable music performances at deSingel in Antwerp, the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels and Opera Vlaanderen and the Handelsbeurs Concert Hall in Ghent.
 
 
 
BIG BANG is a production by ZONZO COMPAGNIE in coproduction with. deSingel, BOZAR, HANDELSBEURS CONCERTZAAL en OPERA VLAANDEREN. ZONZO COMPAGNIE is structurally funded by THE FLEMISH GOVERNMENT. BIG BANG is funded by the CREATIVE EUROPE - PROGRAMME OF THE EUROPEAN UNION.
