created by Matthew Herbert with Ben Power
17 July - 3 August
In order to hear, you really have to listen...
An experiential journey into sound, The Hush asks audiences to listen in a way they never have before. Performers interact with live foley and immersive sound design to recreate the past, imagine the future and give voice to The Shed itself.
Matthew Herbert – composer, DJ, producer and electronic music pioneer – makes his theatrical debut with this audacious sonic experiment.
Welcome to a new age of sound. Welcome to The Hush.
'A fascinating piece of aural theatre, meditating on sound and memory. The sound is so precisely orchestrated that you feel the audience flinch.' Financial Times
'There is an engaging playfulness about The Hush, which investigates the intimate connections between memory and sound.' The Guardian
Running time: 55 minutes
