  • Great for ages:

Two characters set out on a journey through a world filled with Boings, Whooshes, 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.

Researched and developed in collaboration with Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Institute of Acoustics and Vibrations at Southampton University, Shh...Bang! is a delicate dance-theatre performance for children and their adults, playfully exploring sound and silence.

Driven by a desire to create unforgettable early theatrical experiences for young audiences, creators Peut-Être Theatre bring a surreal poetic aesthetic to the world of children’s theatre, combining the visual, the physical and the musical.

Funded by the Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England.

Lively, colourful, sound-focused two-hander.

The Stage

Free Workshop

Join us on stage after the afternoon performance for a free, behind the scenes activity where children and their adults team up to learn how to recreate the fun sound effects in Shh...Bang!

The workshop will be an exploration of the themes of the show through dance, movement and sound. Children will move like the different sounds boing, whoosh, tick tock, splash... and create a fun cacophony!

The workshop takes place at 3:15pm. There is limited availability so you will need to book in advance. You'll be able to get tickets once you have added tickets to Shh...Bang! to your basket.
