The earliest rhythm can be perceived as ritualized everyday occurrences: Calm and attention, satisfaction and protest, hunger and fulfillment. Our closest caregivers are the first ones to use speech melodies, rhythmic word games and noises, to constantly refine these rhythms, to amuse children with stimuli and build a relationship between children and their surroundings. Hence, time is made up of rhythms. It is divided by impulses, whether through a drumbeat, a spoken »Hello!« or a goodbye kiss.
For the rhythmic performance Future Beats, director and composer Bernd Sikora (»Pling, little thing*«) developed a percussion instrument. The »lithobell«, made of wood, stone and metal, can be broken down into six different sound modules. This instrument is part of a room installation through which three artists move: Bernd Sikora, dancer Nasheeka Nedsreal and musician Andreas Pichler.
For many years, Theater o.N. in Prenzlauer Berg has specialized in works of theater for very young audiences. In numerous productions for children two years and up, the Theater’s ensemble has researched performing arts for the very young. Future Beats is the first original staging for babies to be self-produced by Theater o.N.
