The Lost and Found Orchestra
From the creators of STOMP
Like a giant resounding starting pistol, The Lost and Found Orchestra kicks off Adelaide Festival with an unforgettable bang. From the creators of STOMP – the musical extravaganza that first set Adelaide alight in the 90s and has run off-Broadway for 25 years – comes a spectacular symphonic event that will blast the hats off the whole family.
The result of a collaboration between STOMP creator Luke Cresswell and Australia’s master of spectacle Nigel Jamieson (Sydney Olympics Opening Ceremony, How to Train Your Dragon), The Lost and Found Orchestra has for the first time been scaled up as an outdoor extravaganza. In this unique event the international cast of The Lost and Found Orchestra will be joined by hundreds of local participants playing ‘found-object’ percussive instruments.
A refreshingly low-tech triumph, the huge company of performers create amazing tribal rhythms and haunting sounds from recycled hosepipes, bottles, oil drums and bellows, saws, plant pots and rubbish bins. And much more. In a performance that extends well beyond the stage, the rag-and-bone aesthetic belies supreme musical skill and glorious humour, this promises to be the best value family entertainment you’ll come across this year.
Duration: 1hr 15min (no interval)
