Murmur: whispering, gurgling, buzzing, grumbling, babbling, splashing, rustling.

Murmur considers possible and impossible boundaries between man, nature and thing. Can a person become a thing, a machine, or an animal? Can a thing come alive?

Camiel swishes, flings and swirls with speakers that play sounds from nature, which he covers, muffles and distributes. Acrobatically, he makes a live sound composition in motion. He attaches speakers to his body and takes to the air. Is he a helicopter? A flock of starlings? A cocoon? Or simply an inquisitive person? Suddenly the audience’s backpacks buzz, and everything and everyone becomes part of a whirlwind of sound. Are you a human in a group? An animal in a swarm? Or an instrument in a composition? Or are you all of them simultaneously?

Murmur is a circus sound-theatre that stimulates the senses with rustling backpacks, a landscape of speakers and an acrobatic composer. A performance for anyone who wants to be more than just a human.

Part of Rode Hond, the arts festival for families of 30CC.
