Sounds Like Juggling
Where everything buzzes, crackles, ticks, clashes, falls and flies…
Rattling balloons, buzzing clubs, flying speakers…
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-build instruments played by juggling, special props that turn juggling into sound. A totally new genre is born.
All four performers are simultaneously juggler and musician. With van Hout and Wagenaar on stage are Aleš Hrdlička and Clara de Mik. Director is Joeri Vos (Veenfabriek, also coproducer).
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.
Composer Arthur Wagenaar (Close Call, Susies Haarlok) combines all kinds of genres, and loves to use self-made instruments. Juggler Guido van Hout (Gandini’s) combines juggling with elements of physical theatre, dance and music, and particularly loves rhythm. His shows include Droge Druppels, Out of the Box, and, also with Arthur, Verloren Licht en Villa Verdraaid.
