THEATRE PERFORMANCES FOR FAMILIES / ABC-HOUSE
Diorama / Hanafubuki
It all begins on a weird morning, where the sun rises not as a round but as a square. The animals decide whether they are for or against that “new sun”.
A wooden suitcase that functions as a theater is filled with abstract shapes, sets and characters. As a spectator you make an imaginative, poetic and visual journey through this fold-out viewing cabinet. Where the objects make arise different worlds and create new realities.
Sunday 03/10/2021 – For everyone aged 4 years and older
In Dutch at 10 am and at 2 pm, in French at 12 am and 4 pm
Sacrée Pagaille / Clair de Lune Théâtre
Claire de Lune Théâtre specializes in shadow theater in which music and images tell the story. Their latest performance is about the divine work of art, “La Pomme”, which in free fall causes a lot of trouble between heaven and earth!
Sacré Pagaille is shown in La Valise à Séraphin, a self-designed suitcase-theatre. The title is a tribute to Dominique Séraphin, grand master of shadow theater in France at the end of the XVIII.
Sunday 03/10/2021 – For everyone aged 8 years and older

ABC-HOUSE STUDIO VISUAL MUSIC 2021-2022
ABC – STUDIO VISUAL MUSIC
The interaction between music and image is one of the most fascinating relationships in the arts. Numerous experiments and installations by avant-garde and contemporary artists show interdisciplinary approaches to music and sound with color, light, film, acoustics and digital technology.
In this studio you will be able to listen to paintings by Kandinsky, Klee, Mondrian or Rothko or enjoy musical Kamishibai stories such as The Town Musicians of Bremen or Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Composing, improvising or making your own songs is central, but the connections with drama, dance, design, architecture and sciences are also on the agenda. These may include drawing or painting music, designing record covers or graphic scores, creating sound figures or inventing sound poems yourself.
In our workshops you can build music machines or instruments, record the sounds for movie scenes or go on a listening walk in the garden to discover the sounds of nature.
An extensive collection of reference materials, books, web links, experimental films and video clips underscore the experience.
But the most important thing remains the pleasure of making music yourself and the wonder of looking with your ears and listening with your eyes.

POSTA SILENZIOSA 09/2021
Every first day of the month ABC sends a mail: “Posta silenziosa.” A powerful image, a provocative quote, a poetic thought, etc, coming from the ABC collection or the web, and sometimes linked to one of our current projects, but mainly just because we like to surprise you. An eye- or heartcatcher, or call it ‘a healthy form of emotional irritation.’
