Musical Theatre Company Oorkaan Performs “Glimpse” at Brooklyn Academy of Music
In May 2019, Dutch youth music theatre company Oorkaan will perform their award-winning toddler production Glimpse, in a series of concerts for families and schools at BAM, the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
What do colors sound like? Who can understand the moon? What is the sun saying? What sounds lower – a double bass or a drum? How do you play a flash? How do you sing a tree? How many colors does a dream have?
Glimpse transports you to an enchanted dream world, in which sounds and images play an exciting game with one another and with you. It is a music performance for toddlers and their (grand)parents, in which musicians, music, images, technology and audiences embark on a special friendship.
