Murmur is acrobatic sound theatre that appeals to the senses. With murmuring backpacks, a landscape of speakers and an acrobatic composer. An imaginative performance for everyone who sometimes longs to be more than just human.

Camiel is building a world full of sounds. A purring cat comes from a pocket, a swarm of bees flies through the air, two arms create the sound of cars. Far away you hear a finger squeaking on a window. Sea becomes wind becomes breath. Surrounded by the audience, Camiel jumps, falls, rolls, and flies in his attempt to compose the world.

Suddenly the audience’s backpacks start to buzz and everything and everyone becomes part of a swirl of sounds in a loudspeaker landscape.

After the successful family performance Plock! (2017) Grensgeval collaborated again with Camiel Corneille and Stijn Dickel. The result: fizzing new circus sound theatre for all the senses!
