What is the sound of a grain of sand falling against a barrel? Can the rustle of plastic feel like a crackling fire?

Julia is a silence musician. She makes music with very small sounds. Julia’s best friend Dunja, the Arctic Ocean scientist, is far out at sea. Dunja is sending things she finds in the ocean to Julia, who collects them in a sound archive. With the help of the audience and the archive, a roaring undulating headphone show is created.

“Listen, how quiet” is a chance to get familiar with sound technology and through an own, unique experience understand and create music. It is also a story about friendship at a distance.

All audience members wear headphones during the whole performance and get to be a part of creating the sounds. In this exploration of what sound can be and what the sounds can tell, we get to use our imagination and our listening in a new way. The performance aims to offer the audience a sensation of contributing and researching. Through practicing listening, we become better at understanding and connecting to others.

Since 2010, the Swedish performing arts collective Nyxxx has created performances, games and sound installations where the actions of the audience make all the difference. Their works have been displayed in venues such as Unga Dramaten, Uppsala Stadsteater, Teater Västernorrland and bibu-festival. “Listen, how quiet” was made in cooperation with Regionteatern Blekinge Kronoberg.

If you have hearing aid, please contact the venue in advance and we can find a solution!
