The Family Show You’ll Want to See At The Holland Center

For as long as I’ve had this blog, I’ve been cluing you in to the best family shows brought to Omaha by Omaha Performing Arts. I worked there for a few years, and now I’m just a fan. So, here’s the next show you’ve got to see: Scrap Arts Music.

Scrap Arts Music is a percussive group — think “making drums out of everything” kind of thing. They’ll perform “Children of Metropolis” at the Holland Performing Arts Center on Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. It’s an all-ages show – so read on to see if it’s right for your family!

Disclosure: Omaha Performing Arts provided complimentary tickets to me and provided the tickets for the giveaways.

The show starts at 7 p.m., but arrive early for the family-friendly lobby activities that start at 6 p.m. One of the activities will be making your own instruments.

Who is Scrap Arts Music?

Scrap Arts Music is a Canadian experimental pop percussion company, which basically means this quintet makes awesome music with found objects like scrap metal, artillery shells, accordion parts and more.

It’s not just music, though. Scrap Arts Music adds athletic choreography to their inventive show.

What’s “Children of Metropolis” about?

“Children of Metropolis” is the latest production by Gregory Kozak and Justine Murdy, the co-founders, artistic directors and designers of Scrap Arts Music.

According to the press release, “It is a fast-paced, all-acoustic percussion show, with sci-fi-inspired film and video projections. The quintet performs with gymnastic agility and percussive drive, demonstrating incredible musical skill while striking, moving and bowing hand-made, mobile sculptural instruments made from recycled and salvaged materials.”

Sounds pretty awesome.
