Klanghaus (At the Queen Street Bus Depot, Colchester) - 8.30pm - SOLD OUT

23rd September 2016

A special event held at the Queen Street Bus Depot, Colchester CO1.

In partnership with Roman River Music..
Featuring The Neutrinos and Sal Pittman

Part gig, part live art installation and totally theatre. Edinburgh and London smash hit comes to Colchester.

In the atmospheric surroundings of Colchester’s disused Queen St Bus Depot (and featuring a historic Routemaster bus), experimental art-rock collective The Neutrinos and visual artist Sal Pittman will assemble a site-specific montage of light, sound and space in which the working history of the building and the site is unearthed.

★★★★ ‘Breathes a lungful of fresh air into gig-going and theatre alike’ Maxie Szalwinska, Sunday Times

This 360-degree, immersive experience brings buildings to life through live performance, sound design, projected images and glimpsed vignettes – akin to a duet with the room, taking deep breaths of life and love.

KlangHaus originally created a sensation at the Edinburgh Fringe and KlangHaus:On Air sold out 41 performances at London’s Royal Festival Hall. Now KlangHaus: Alight will unravel a secret world from the walls and spaces of Queen St Bus Depot, the site of Colchester Theatre Royal which attracted performers like Lilly Langtree, Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde.

★★★★ ‘the walls of the space and the music . . . are genuinely in dialogue with each other’ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

‘If – like me – you’re well into your third decade of going to gigs, you can glumly think that you’ll never see anything truly original again. Yet there’s one show that truly delivers the shock of the new . . . it’s the most innovative presentation of live music I’ve ever seen – a total game-changer.’ Alex Needham, The Guardian

★★★★★ ‘a blast of aural and visual magic . . . a joy-inducing original’ Donald Hutera, The Times

Suitable for ages 12+. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

★★★★ ‘By turns lulls, terrorizes and invigorates the audience … an eerie but magnetic rock’n’roll mantra … crashing drums, rumbling fuzz bass, lighting is either low or blinding’ Fiona Shepherd, The Scotsman.
