We are surrounded by sounds. If we stop now and listen, the silence is noisy and telling us so many stories already. Based on soundscaping of locations, Noisy Places brings us smoothly from one train station where a couple is saying goodbye to a nordic toundra where a hunter faces a bear, or to another fantastic place where our dreams can come true.
Gael Doorneweerd-Perry directs the format based on a workshop designed to explore the different necessary skills to use soundeffects both in scenes and in the structure of the format itself. After working with the cast, they will realize a montage of scene linked by the soundscaping of the places where everything is happening.
The direction can end into a show of 45mn with Gael as live director. The duration of preparation is at least 3h of workshop.

Testimonial to come.
“Noisy places” taught me about inspiration, being brave and bold with my own audial suggestions, to be not afraid of producing what ever comes out of my body, that being the instrument at hand.
