Welcome to roundABOUT. Zonzo Compagnie's new mini-arena opens its doors for the first time. It is a circular magic box that can accommodate a small audience and a soloist and literally surround them with video and sound.
Japanese percussionist Tsubasa Hori sets foot in this magical arena. Her world is that of the Taiko drum, but she also plays a whole range of instruments. Accompanying herself on the Shamisen, she sings songs and narrates.
Her starting point is the Bon dance: a colorful, festive ritual in honor of the spirit realm, the realm of the ancestors that is celebrated extensively in Japan. With video projections by Sarah Yu Zeebroek and Willem Mertens, she evokes a wonderful world, a roundabout of changes and metamorphoses. German director Vera Tussing is responsible for the dramaturgy of the piece and assists Tsubasa with the choreography.
