BEST LARGE ENSEMBLE
Copper & Skin, by Zonzo Compagnie
"Copper & Skin takes you to a world where you forget about the surroundings and just enjoy the journey of virtuous music and inventive visualisation and choreography. Nothing in this production is missing and there is just the right amount of everything. It is artistically very high level but not in the way that excludes someone from the audience by taking it too far. During the show, you simply start to live through the instruments and movement in this elegant, stylish and innovative show that proves that with quality elements, but a somewhat minimalistic approach, you can achieve something marvellous. This piece really stands out in its category with its uniqueness and creativity, but especially by the quality that it has in music, visual design, performance and choreography as a whole."
