How do you talk, how do I talk? In Sticks you experience together with the four virtuoso percussionists of Percossa how you can talk without saying a word. How you can make music without using instruments, and how you can open your ears for sounds you never heard before. Sticks is a percussion concert with four ridiculously polite gentlemen, who make you listen to the rhythm of things. But be aware.. they might be not as civilized as they look.
Percossa and Oorkaan previously produced the successful productions Tijgers op de Trap and De Gebroeders Kist (The Box Brothers), the international hit which is touring around the world for more than eight years.
Duration: 55 minutes.
Founded in 2000 in the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Oorkaan is the only organization in The Netherlands that has dedicated itself exclusively to the creation of high quality staged concerts for young audiences. Our aim is to give every child the opportunity to experience the power of live music. The staged concerts for 1,5 to 12-year-olds focus on all kinds of live classical music from all over the world, performed by outstanding musicians. For the creation of the productions, Oorkaan has developed the internationally recognized Oorkaan Method, which makes it unique in the world. Under the artistic direction of Caecilia Thunnissen, Oorkaan presents about 7 music productions per season and organizes roughly 200 performances a year in The Netherlands and abroad. www.oorkaan.nl
