Bang ! is the sound of a gun going off, of an explosion; « Bang » is the Dutch translation for fear, the theme of the piece.

There is fear that attracts and excites us: looking for thrills, trembling at a horror film, letting the imagination run wild, scaring oneself just for the fun of it, fear as a game.

There are also the fears that scare us, the childhood fears: ghosts, noises, the big bad wolf, darkness.  

Then there are the existential fears: fear of the other, of differences, of solitude, of death.

Bang ! explores all the facettes of fear,  its physicality, its sound, and what it brings out in our collective and individual imagination, while avoiding the caricature or anecdote.

Bang ! explores fear with  a good dose of humor and absurdity, without fearing our fears nor fear of exposing them.
