The Music Factory (6+)

music
factory (6+)

The five Calefax men work in a pipe factory. Every day they do the same and that suits them fine. So there is great panic when one day the orders stop coming in.

The men decide to experiment with the pipes and inadvertently invent a musical instrument, which happens to sound really good as well! This turns out to be the start of a wild musical adventure with wind instruments. The Music Factory is a humorous performance without words, but with lots and lots of music.

“The performance (..) is outstanding. Not a single word is spoken, but the musicians turn out to be talented mime artists that tell a humorous and touching story on social relationships through movement and music”

Awards

The Music Factory was awarded the prestigious Junge Ohren Preis (Young Ears Prize) 2012, for the best music production for young audiences. In their report, the jury said: “The Music Factory gives a brief, fascinating and lively glimpse of the history, construction and playing technique of reed instruments, through musical forms of communication. The structure of the arranged compositions and styles of music is made accessible for children in an exciting, non-verbal plot. The project serves as a good example in the way it encourages children to experiment.”
