Sonic Acts: Trance

“Somewhere between an underground rave and a cinematic experiment”

It’s that time again! AKA, Sonic Acts Biennial time 😉 Having kicked off earlier this month, this weekend at Paradiso is a performance you won’t wanna miss. Visionary contemporary artist Tianzhuo Chen, presents a show that integrates his work from the past decade into a fiery baptism of performances. Positioned somewhere between a rock concert, underground rave, immersive theatre, and otherworldly cinematic experiments, TRANCE sets the stage for exploration.

Spanning six chapters across twelve hours, Chen gives birth to a narrative with an unforgettable roster alongside him. With musicians and performers such as ¥ØU$UK€ ¥UK1MAT$U, Dis Fig, KIM KHAN, Ylva Falk, Kasimyn and Ican Harem (Gabber Modus Operandi),  no words can capture what’s to come.

This psychedelic spectacle really interprets what Sonic Acts means in a new way, So get your ticket, and we’ll see ya there.
