The Hush

The Hush

created by Matthew Herbert with Ben Power

17 July - 3 August 2013

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 temporary theatre 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.
