About

Discover a scabrous, mischievous and invigorating theme! A whole set of percussion instruments are brought together, whose shocks and malicious sounds embody the devil. In an imaginary but very sonorous clearing, this diabolus in musica itself invites the famous Sabbath Queen, accompanied by a crowd of monsters, witches, puppets and skeletons…

At the appointed hour, the wands perform several macabre dances and bear witness to humans’ eterrnal fascination with death. For the pleasure of the audience, composer Zad Moulktaka lends himself to the game and creates a contemporary vision of Hell.
