Klanghaus at the Southbank Centre

Klanghaus on Air, a theatrical, immersive musical performance, travelling through the hidden roof spaces of London's historic Southbank Centre.
KlangHaus is part gig, part live art installation and totally theatre.

In the unsung roof space above Royal Festival Hall, art and rock band The Neutrinos and visual artist Sal Pittman assemble a site-specific montage of light, sound and space in which sky, river, wave and cloud collide.

This 360-degree, immersive experience brings buildings to life through live performance, sound design, projected images and glimpsed vignettes – akin to a duet with the room, taking deep breaths of life and love.

KlangHaus originally created a sensation at the Edinburgh Fringe and is now created anew to unravel a secret world from the walls of the Southbank Centre's unseen spaces.

The Neutrinos and Sal Pittman are associate artists of Norwich Arts Centre

**** ‘the walls of the space and the music . . . are genuinely in dialogue with each other’ (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian)

‘If – like me – you’re well into your third decade of going to gigs, you can glumly think that you’ll never see anything truly original again. Yet there’s one show [...] that truly delivers the shock of the new . . . it’s the most innovative presentation of live music I’ve ever seen – a total game-changer.’ (Alex Needham, The Guardian)

***** ‘a blast of aural and visual magic . . . a joy-inducing original’ (The Times)
