A short, immersive performance experience for small audiences.
Three percussionists interpret the sounds of everyday life in an IKEA-esque house, exploring the ideas of habit, space, ritual and perfection. By focusing on the unnoticed, beautiful and minute sounds we make in our repetitive daily gestures, House Proud challenges audiences to examine their home life and appreciate the simplistic joy of the house soundscape.
House Proud is the brainchild of Melbourne’s Anna van Veldhuisen (percussion and composition and also Aphids’ Admin and Marketing Assistant) and Ben Landau (design), and features Brisbane’s Rebecca Lloyd-Jones and Angus Wilson. Drawn from real-life research into the quirks and habits of housemates, friends, family and colleagues, the team of percussionists will celebrate, through musical performance, the nature of us and our homes.
Performers: Anna van Veldhuisen - co-director, composer, percussionist; Ben Landau - co-director & designer; Rebecca Lloyd-Jones - percussionist; Angus Wilson - percussionist
