Riverside and Junkyard Beats present

Stomp meets The Umbilical Brothers in this high-octane, hilarious show for the whole family where one person’s trash is another person’s treasure!

Using everyday household items as percussion instruments, this bunch of musical misfits reinvigorate unwanted junk, bringing it to life in exciting and surprising ways.

From an abandoned kitchen and wheelie bins becoming the greatest drum set in the world, to creating unique sound machines out of plastic bags and the human body, this sustainable world of cardboard, junk, drumming, dance, theatre, comedy, gibberish and rhythm will delight and capture the imaginations of the young and the young at heart.

Suitable for ages 3+ and their families


Enhance your experience and add the interactive Junkyard Beats Drumming Workshop on stage to your ticket.

Participants will be taken on a creative journey of discovery, exploring the connection between creative recycling, music and teamwork. With a focus on sustainability, boost your child’s thinking and environmental awareness while igniting their creativity as they devise music, help the environment and channel energy in a fun, unique, and collaborative way.

Limited spots available, book early to avoid missing out!

Suitable for ages 6+

Oded Prior – Founder and Creative Director of Junkyard Beats

Oded was born and raised in Israel and started to play the drums when he was 13 years old. He began experimenting with objects lying around his home to create sounds and discovered that anything can be a drum, including the human body. Oded is highly skilled in body percussion and junk percussion. He has also trained in hip-hop dance, drumming, acting, cajón, djembe and hang drum.

After years of touring with some of the world’s top rhythm and percussion groups, Oded has found true passion in connecting communities and spreading environmental awareness all over the globe through music and creative recycling. He has taught rhythm workshops and master classes around the world and recently did a TEDX talk about his rhythmical journey.
