A HOUSE FULL OF MUSIC

Tormented by the noise of everyday life, a man collapses. But then a good fairy appears and resolves to give the man’s ears a boost by feeding them a variety of delicious sound treats. What is noise? What is music? John Cage took our listening habits and our way of thinking about music and turned them completely upside down. We retrace his footsteps on this exciting listening journey through day-to-day life and marvel at all the things that can be music to our ears.

“A House Full of Music” was awarded Austria’s Stella09 Darstellender.Kunst.Preis for its outstanding concept, with the jury praising it as a production that “uses an exciting idea to open children up to a different perception and more conscious way of listening”.

PRESS COMMENTS

Taking as their starting point John Cage's discoveries about music, Jevgenij Sitochin, Henny Reents and Florian Mueller invite the kids to join them for a fanciful musical journey. (Kinderkurier)

This is important theatre, - important enough to be a warm-up act for every single show in town. But it has the impromptu, picnic mood of a Socratic dialogue, with enlightenment always just around the corner. (Vienna Review)
