Free - just turn up

Sound Catchers is a concept for outdoor performance using live percussion, dance and digital technologies that will be presented by Broadway for Nottingham Light Night in February 2024. It will be a free outdoor show suitable for audiences of all ages. 

This month Sound Catchers visited Broadway for a Studio Talk and Workshop session, a live recording of the Studio Talk will be available soon.

Who and What are Sound Catchers?

Presented by Broadway Arts & Tech for Nottingham Light Night 2024.

The Sound Catchers are ‘otherworldly’ beings visiting the planet Earth to learn about its human inhabitants through their unique senses using sound and movement.

Find the Sound Catchers outside Broadway and roaming Hockley for a playful exploration of what it means to communicate and belong as they negotiate this strange new environment.

A fun, interactive show with live percussion, dance and cutting-edge digital technologies that all can join in with!
