In the hands of Junkyard Beats, ordinary household items and unwanted junk comes alive in exciting and surprising ways!
In the hands of Junkyard Beats, ordinary household items are transformed into extraordinary musical instruments and unwanted junk comes alive in exciting and surprising ways!
THE BOX SHOW? excites the imagination of children and adults alike. We follow four characters during their daily activities in a world made of cardboard boxes and junk. The contents of an abandoned kitchen and wheelie bins become the greatest drum set in the world; Plastic bags are an amazing musical instrument and the human body becomes a unique sound machine.
Tag along for a day in the life of a bunch of musical misfits as they reinvigorate the junk that the world has forgotten.
Learn about sustainability with this high energy, imaginative music-in-education performance combining drumming, dance, theatre and comedy.
With a language of gibberish and rhythm, this show is accessible to any age and nationality. You won't look at a cardboard box the same way after watching this show!

What is special about Junkyard beats is the combination of music, dance, comedy and environmental awareness. Our vision is to inspire children and adults to use their imagination in looking at everyday objects and recycled materials in a musical way. The educational purpose of the show is to raise the awareness on creative recycling, reusing and sustainability through music. There is a big focus on the connection between people through universal rhythm language. With a language of gibberish and rhythm, this show is accessible to any age and nationality.
