A dozen rocking chairs are waiting for you in the NAC’s public space. They are for young and old alike, so take a seat and relax into the gentle world of lullabies.

Equipped with built-in speakers, each chair whispers beautiful treasures in your ears. During this musical interlude, allow yourself to get carried away by the echoes of childhood through songs from all over the world - more than 1,300 lullabies in 70 languages—collected by the artist since 2016.

P.S. For a full experience, don't forget to pass by the LULLING VAN, a mobile recording studio set up nearby. An authentic Westfalia parked outside the NAC is waiting for you to share your own childhood lullabies. Sing along to contribute to the rocking chair soundtrack.

Rock awhile, then come and sing ...
