Sound Catchers delivers performances, workshops and studio talks.
We love to explore new ideas and ways of working so get in touch if you have an idea of how we can work together.
We can perform with a cast of between 4-7. This can extend with the addition of a community cast of between 6-12 people. The show is designed for outdoor spaces including urban and Greenfield sites. The performance format is designed to respond flexibly to different performance sites and situations. We can perform in a static area, roam, or feature as part of a procession. We are self-sufficient in terms of pa and power requirements.
Previous performances include:
Beeston Light Night 2022 & 2023
Derby Festé 2023
Grimsby Creates Noise 2022
Applause Rural Touring 2022/2023
Our workshops explore the relationship between dance and music, improvisation, dramaturgy and rhythm work for percussionists and dancers. We can also integrate aspects of working with creative technologies, using wearable tech props to generate sound and light in response to movement.
A community cast performance workshop offer will be available from January 2024 to coincide with booking a performance.
We have delivered practical workshops for Nasa UK and Phoenix Arts in Leicester.
As well as practical participatory workshops, we also deliver Studio Talks that share our creative process journey in relationship to working with creative technologies, and developing the dramaturgy of an outdoor arts show that uses improvisation, co-creation and inclusive participation in the dramaturgy of the work.
We have delivered studio talks for Near Now Studio in Nottingham and you can see the most recent one streamed here.
