Ben Landau and Anna van Veldhuisen co-directed House Proud, a new percussion and performance installation piece, presented by the Brisbane Festival 2011 as part of UNDER THE RADAR.

A short, immersive performance experience for small audiences. Three percussionists interpret the sounds of everyday life in an IKEA-esque house, exploring the ideas of habit, space, ritual and perfection. By focusing on the unnoticed, beautiful and minute sounds we make in our repetitive daily gestures, House Proud challenges audiences to examine their home life and appreciate the simplistic joy of the house soundscape.
