Zefiro Torna's antidote

Like many other artists and ensembles, Zefiro Torna had to cancel upcoming concerts due to the corona crisis. It's a pity, but the health of everyone around us comes first.

In the meantime, we continue to work on future projects from our attic, living room or improvised office. Every week, we'll provide a musical antidote, starting with this playlist on Spotify:

Stay healthy and creative!


A lab of senses

In January 2020, Zefiro Torna will reshape the production of Balsam into a music theater performance that stimulates all the senses. To this end, the ensemble works together with theater company Laika - Theater der Zinnen. Balsam becomes a visual and physically stimulating laboratory in which the live music merges with surprising scents and flavors. While the music is simmering and enchanting, the spectators witness all kinds of experiments and chemical processes: oil solidifies dropwise into edible pearls, milk becomes electric, charcoal a sweet treat. Balms, powders, drinks and amuse gueules in all scents, colors and flavors are presented and shared by the performers with those sitting next to you, premiered on January 31, 2020 in Le Channel (Calais, FR) and then on tour in France, The Netherlands and Belgium.

Te Ros!

—  (2009)

Pantalone – Zefiro Torna – Ros Beiaardcomité

Co-production / Pantalone – Zefiro Torna - Ros Beiaardcomité

In collaboration with Klara and CC Belgica

Exiting music theatre for the whole family

What happens to a man when he is offered a horse making him invincible in battle? What happens when man and horse become best friends? What happens to the world when this war has no ending? What happens when the man falls in love with a woman desiring peace? What happens when de king decides the horse must die for peace’s sake?

Te Ros! is a family performance in which the legend of the the Four Sons of Duke Aymon and the horse Bayard is brought to life in a subtle play of music, video and tough knight's tales. A boys band composed of wizard Madelgijs and three play men start a journey. Armed with nothing but a range of stories, enthralling troubadour and trouveur songs and disarming caprices, they head out looking for feats of arms and the innermost sentiments of Renaud and his horse.

As a part of the Ros Beiaard Parade of Sunday 10 May 2010.
