The Sound Of
Het Geluid Van (The Sound Of) are site specific performances, inspired by the original identity, sounds and function of abandoned buildings at places throughout the Netherlands. BOT tells the story of industrial heritage buildings by making a musical theatre performance on site.
Since 2011 BOT generated a series of 14 projects on site, each of them starting from scratch, every episode to be played in a unique series on the very same spot wich is the muze of the story to be told.
Goethe classic, firmly tackled with music from self-built machines, amazing video projections and physical play. Goethe meets Tom Waits. In MY FAUST, the darkness creeps deeper into life, the boundary between good and evil becomes wafer-thin. A story about lost innocence, carnal hunger and unstoppable desire.
A small, hilarious saga about the life and times of four farmers’ sons, all too freakin lazy to spend some time maintaining their livestock. Their initial herd of 1000 beasts has shrunk to one left. And besides lazyness… there’s hunger.
‘What if we make a production within a month without any budget to spend, give it our best shot and see what we come up with. Than stick it in a borrowed rusty van, take it to a small shed at the Oerol Festival, serve it raw to a theatre audience and see what happens.’
