House Proud

House Proud is a short, immersive performance experience for small audiences devised with Anna van Veldhuisen which was  performed at Brisbane Festival UNDER THE RADAR in 2011.  Three percussionists interpret the sounds of everyday life in an IKEA-esque house, exploring the ideas of habit, space, ritual and perfection.

By focusing on the unnoticed, beautiful and minute sounds we make in our repetitive daily gestures, House Proud challenges audiences to examine their home life and appreciate the simplistic joy of the house soundscape.
