Everything is a Dinosaur

A tribute to children's wild imagination and creativity

Everything is a Dinosaur is an interactive theatre performance for children aged 4-10, to be enjoyed with their parents and grandparents. The show premiered in autumn 2021 and was performed outdoors in forests and natural settings throughout the Danish Municipality of Hedensted.

During the performance, children are encouraged to use their imagination to help create a world that no one has ever seen before. With the help of two dinosaur-story-experts, they must find traces of a deceased dinosaur and use their creativity to make up stories about the life and fate of the dinosaur. The children’s findings become a part of the story, which is a fantastic, imaginative and completely unscientific tale where everything can be a dinosaur.

Sound Design and Composition

For Everything is a Dinosaur, a site-specific sound design was created using only found sounds and the voices of the audience. The found sounds were recorded during a theatrical workshop with children, where they searched for “dinosaur-findings.” The sound was created to come from nature itself, so all instruments and sound effects were created using transformed sounds of sticks, stones, and other natural objects found in the local area.

During the play, the actors recorded the audience making dinosaur sounds. The sound was then pitch-shifted to make it sound like a real BIG (or very small) dinosaur. This magical transformation happens live and right in front of the audience. To operate the sounds, music, and audience samples, a hardware sampler was placed on stage and controlled by the actors.
