Where everything buzzes, crackles, ticks, clashes, falls and flies…
Rattling balloons, buzzing clubs, flying speakers and a giant marble track full of sensors. Juggling you’ve never heard before, and music you’ve never seen!
Composer Arthur Wagenaar and juggler Guido van Hout combine their powers to let juggling and music melt into something totally new. Self-built instruments played by juggling, special props that turn juggling into sound. Fellow inventor is instrument designer Dianne Verdonk. With Arthur en Guido on stage are Clare de Mik and Aleš Hrdlička. Director is Joeri Vos.
Sounds Like Juggling is all about patterns. In music, in juggling, in life. The power and the beauty of patterns. Being stuck in patterns. And above all, breaking free of patterns. An art now more important than ever. Sounds Like Juggling: a fantastic playground of movement and sound, where the rules might change any moment and nothing is impossible.
There are two versions:
a short version of about 30 minutes and a long version of about 60 minutes.
Both are without spoken language, for all ages, and suitable for both outdoor and indoor spaces.
