Tall Tales will be in residence at the Bach Festival and will open the festival on Friday, June 21, together with B'Rock Orchestra & Vocal Consort from Flanders.

The opening concert In Your Hands is an ode to 300 years John Passion. Led by guitarist/composer Kalle Kalima, a unique chamber version is created with only four singers, strings, flute, vintage synthesizer and electric guitar. The essences of the selected arias and choruses are meanwhile visualized in an emotional language of movement, tension and liberation, by four acrobats from Tall Tales Company. A completely new musical and visual translation.

Perhaps Bach's immortal setting of Jesus' last days is essentially… about us. Although the music and lyrics are centuries old, they invite us to think about the choices we make in our own lives. How do we take responsibility, how do we face our fears, how do we deal with loss and how do we dream about a future, any future?

Tall Tales also plays on June 29 SquareTwo at the Bach Festival in Dordrecht.
