Shh… Bang!

Luton Library Theatre

Peut Etre Theatre present

A delicate, visual, non-verbal, dance-theatre performance for children and their adults, playfully exploring silence and noise.

Two characters set out on a journey through a world filled with boings, wooshes, tick tocks and cacophony. Their journey is punctuated by silence, and as they are wrapped up in stillness, they learn to listen to that silence. Join us on this special journey, learning to feel the noise and see the sounds around you.

The research and development for this show was conducted in collaboration with Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Institute of Acoustics and Vibrations in Southampton University. This show is kindly funded by the Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England.

Age guidance: 3+

Reviews:

"Lively, colourful, sound-focused two-hander for over-threes." - The Stage

Luton Library Theatre

Luton Library Theatre opened in 1962 as a lecture theatre before gradually changing to a traditional entertainment venue with 256 seats and two side aisles.

The Theatre began to build up a programme of amateur and professional drama, film, music of all types and children's events. In fact a pretty long list of events that covers almost every taste!

All of this continued through the sixties, seventies and eighties. During the nineties the seating was changed to a more modern style and colour with a centre isle with a slight rake. This meant the amount of seating had to be reduced to the current capacity of 238.

In the late nineties and early noughties, there were more changes both fabric and technical makeup of the Theatre. This brings us up to 2009, when the Library itself closed for a major refurbishment. Some improvements were made to the front of house and bar areas of the theatre, plus the introduction of a new cafe.
