BRUM is a sound walk in a forest. Participants listen to their presence in the forest and explore the relationship between the trees and humans. What is the forest like in your area and how well do you notice the trees around you, do you know what they are called? Have you hugged a tree? In BRUM you get the opportunity to go inside the bark and get to know the trees in a previously unknown way.


The trees in the forest are the performers of the piece and lead the audience through a journey where they share deep knowledge of their existence which reflects in an adventurous way human relationships. The spectator embarks on an expedition alone or in the company of close travelers. In BRUM, the audience is given the opportunity to temporarily get relieved  from human-centered thinking and relax into the moment that the forest has to offer in any kind of weather that prevails. Trees influence the audience's perception in the forest, shaping and controlling, for example by letting the viewer play, touch, speak, sing, lie down and experience.
