The project

Two characters set out on a journey through a world filled with Boings, Whooshes, Tick-Tocks and Cacophony! Their journey is punctuated by silence, and as they are wrapped up in stillness, they learn to listen to that silence.

The research and development for the show was in collaboration with Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research at University of Southampton

Project context and aims

Peut-Être Theatre led by Artistic Director Daphna Attias brings a surreal poetic aesthetic to the world of children’s theatre. Driven by a desire to create unforgettable early theatrical experiences for young audiences, our shows effectively combine the visual, the physical and the musical. The company has created seven productions to date.

Ssh…Bang! is at NST Nuffield Southampton Theatres at Highfield Campus, summer 2017
