L'expédition de la Rythmobile

Piano Nobile January 19, 2020

Created by Jeunesses Musicales Canada

This theatrical performance features percussionists creating different rhythms using all sorts of everyday objects. This makes for extraordinary choreography involving balls, rackets, garbage cans, and other unexpected items.

The Rhythmobile - a super-powered, all-terrain, hybrid vehicle - has unfortunately run out of gas. Captain Kit Crash, the Rhythmobile’s clumsy driver, and his tinkering mechanic, Whiplash, have had to swerve off to the side of the road in a panic. To make things even more complicated, the technologically sophisticated 4X4 can’t start without the right kind of high rhythm-rated fuel. Time is running out. Before falling too far behind in the rally race, our two adventurers immediately begin searching for their precious fuel: rhythm.
