Get ready: the Big Bang is back and it will transform the NAC into a joyful musical maze, full of adventures in sound to explore. Thrilling activities, festive concerts, surprise performances and strange sound machines in every corner of the building promise to be a feast for your eyes and your ears. Bring your family, grab your friends and get ready for a unique experience of colour and sound, sure to burst you out of those winter blues!
Psst! Certain performances and activities are also presented on Saturday February 15!
Ages 5-12 – We received a box containing a whole show. Anything inside this box can (and does!) become a drum! The show’s beat masters ping-pong between circus and music: buckle up for the wild ride!
Ever been curious about what really goes on backstage? Well here’s your chance. Enjoy three mini concerts as you tour behind the scenes at the NAC. Are you up for the adventure?
This ukulele virtuoso can do just about anything with his instrument. No joke! Wait till he plays a hip-hop beat with chopsticks! You would be right if you thought that James has more than one trick up his sleeve…
