New show LightHaus to debut at Norwich Love Light Festival
Free to see journey through saturated colour, pitch darkness and blinding light for returning festival
KlangHaus partners The Neutrinos and Sal Pittman are embarking on a new collaboration with lighting designer and creative Tom Clutterbuck to present the world premiere of their new sound and light experience LightHaus for next month’s Love Light Festival.
LightHaus will perform on each day of the festival, Feb 17, 18 and 19 February, at Norwich School’s Blake Studio, next to Norwich Cathedral’s main entrance. All performances are free but due to strictly limited capacities advance booking is strongly recommended. This 15-minute immersive experience for family audiences, music fans, the curious, and the unsuspecting incorporates natural sounds, light and projections.
LightHaus takes an intense journey through saturated colour, pitch darkness and blinding light blended with sound and song for any kind of weather. The sea’s constant force, ever changing hues and capacity to render all elemental are at the heart of the shows oblique narrative and, at its centre, a beacon of hope
Karen Reilly of The Neutrinos explained ‘LightHaus will be a drop in an ocean full of surprises, an offering to the sea and its power to shape our world. The sea’s constant force, ever changing hues and its capacity to render all elemental are at the heart of the shows oblique narrative and, at its centre, a beacon of hope.’
Audiences should expect evocative sounds from mournful fog horns to tidal bells, all reminders of the power of nature and our insignificance and vulnerability.
There will be several shows each day with a relaxed show each day at 16.30, family shows from 17.00 to 18.50 and adult (12+) performances from 19.10 – 18.50. Free tickets are bookable via
Art rock mavericks The Neutrinos have been at the cutting edge of music making for 20 years. Their KlangHaus show deconstructs the way a rock gig works. It became a smash hit at the Edinburgh Festival before going on to sell out over 100 performances at London’s Royal Festival Hall. The Times described them as ‘A blast of aural and visual magic’ in a 5 star review. In 2021 they took their revolutionary Darkroom installation, targeting climate change awareness to Glasgow’s COP26 UN Climate Conference, after trialling it at UEA’s Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.
Sal Pittman is an artist whose work lurks somewhere in the shadows; rich with tactile, off-kilter, unapologetic personality – working with light, supergraphics, typography and montage in a seamless line between analogue and digital.
The multi-talented and multifunctional Tom Clutterbuck has been described as “The Swiss Army Knife of Theatre” – the only thing you need take with you!
Love Light Norwich returns for a second year on 17, 18 and19 February 2022. It features stunning new installations, projections, and performances designed to amaze and delight. This free light festival makes Norwich shine with three days of enchanting experiences and is open to everybody. www.lovelightnorwich.co.uk
