Can You Hear Colour? | Patch Theatre | Adelaide Festival | 9-11 Mar 2018

Can You Hear Colour? A kaleidoscopic opera for children.

A Patch Theatre Company Production in Association with Adelaide Festival.

What if your paint box sang to you? To some, the key of C major is red, to others definitely white. It’s commonplace to talk about a ‘colourful’ score, but for some it’s literally true. What if you were born with this strange gift? Would your paintings harmonise agreeably or turn into a scary brown discordant mess? And how would you feel if the colours on the notes of your xylophone were all ‘wrong’?

Patch Theatre Company‘s new piece, conceived by Naomi Edwards and composed by Alan John, is an exploration of what music is and an invitation to take time to listen, learn from those who inhabit unfamiliar worlds, and experience life in new ways.

Can You Hear Colour? is an operatic visual poem that promises to delight children, 4+ and their families. Weaving together children’s love of colour and music, this sensory adventure celebrates the unique way we each see, hear and share our world.

Featuring the splendid vocals of Michaela Burger (Rumpelstiltskin) and Bethany Hill (Saul).

You’ll come out humming the rainbow.
