Livestream Concert Performance by VKKO

The techno classic ensemble VKKO is a sound  machine and a now orchestra. In flamboyant,  sweaty concerts with a physically challenging character, they convey an exciting new interpretation of classical musical traditions. For the ID Festival, they are developing together with some

actors a programme in the spirit of Gogol and Ionesco. The musical and theatrical performance will focus on questions such as: What controversial energy can absurdity reveal in composed or improvised music? How absurd has the classical concert business become or remained?

Now in its fifth year, the ID Festival reflects on the complex relationships between Israelis and Germans living in Germany and the questions they pose to one another. Under the artistic

direction of Ohad Ben-Ari, this anniversary edition examines the absurdities of our daily lives.

"...the craziest orchestra in Bavaria" Bayerischer Rundfunk, PULS   "How can you still make revolutionary music today? The Verworner Krause Chamber Orchestra comes very close because they play techno. That this combination is not so far fetched is shown by the coherence of their compositions." Süddeutsche Zeitung
