The Edge

In this delightful, wordless performance, three musicians -a trombonist, a clarinettist and a French horn player – use the language of music to explore the world of breath and wind. In this enthralling world every waft turns into a beautiful sound – from a gust through your hair to blowing up a beach ball and even the blast of your dad sneezing!

Whoosh! stimulates skin and hair, eyes and ears, in a perfect introduction to performance and music for little ones aged 1 – 4 years old.

A production of & Festival 2 Turven Hoog, performed by Alle Hoeken van de Kamermuziek. Directed by Ide van Heiningen and Virág Dezsö (MAPA) and music by Bastiaan Woltjer.
