Milano 2015-20… pactaSOUNDzone is a research path and joint between ZONE and company PACTA dei TEATRI. One of our target was bring music on stage as a parallel sound-acting, and with the 2013 production of Aristophanes in Blue, where the acting itself was born from the score, the path naturally landed to PACTAsoundZONE.

• 2017: starting of the first real series with interventions by Alejandro Jaraj&VLPsound, Maddalena Novati-NoMus, Piero Chianura-BigBox, M. Pisati e F. Michelazzi with Flash&Bip.
