For children 6 – 18 months

Rockaby is Frisse Oren’s ode to the lullaby.

In a soft, secure environment, a singer, a clarinettist and an oud player engage in musical encounters with the young audience and each other. Performers and audience abide together in specially designed scenery with abstract shapes that move, colourful lights and elements that make wonderful noises. Combined with music and performance from the Frisse Oren musicians, it ensures that Rockaby is a feast for the senses.

An Arabic lullaby from the childhood memories of the Syrian Jaber Fayad was the starting point for Rockaby, but in Jaber’s compositions, you hear the influence of music from around the world and from many different periods. The sounds stimulate the imagination and make you reminisce, with a smile, about places you may never have actually visited.
