A dark room. 
Electronic music playing
Five dancers. A forest of speakers. 
You can watch, listen, dance. 
Allow yourself to get carried away. 
Welcome to NOISE CONTROL. 

“Noise Control” is an installational performance that combines electronic music, scenography and light design with different genres within dance; Jazz, break dance, modern and contemporary dance. 

Five dancers with different backgrounds, created rooms within the room, allowing the spectator to come up close and intimate. The audience can choose to experience impressive windmill-moves from a very close up view, or regard the performance for afar. An installation of white striped floors crossing the room, together with a forest of 50 small loudspeakers sending out alternative soundscapes, creates a room the audience is free to explore. As a spectator you can walk, stand, listen and watch, choosing your own focus point in the performance. The primary target audience is from the age of 15 and up – recalling the club nights and school disco.
