Shut Up & Play The Piano

Commune Cinema returns to House of Vans on the 7th of March with an exclusive screening of documentary Shut & Up and Play the Piano, charting the journey of Grammy-winning composer, virtuoso pianist and entertainer Chilly Gonzales as an outrageous pop performer who invited himself to the ivory tower of classical music.


Using Gonzales' extensive video archive in a rather unorthodox manner, the cinematic documentary Shut Up and Play the Piano follows the artist from his native Canada to late 90s underground Berlin, and via Paris to the world's great philharmonic halls. It dives deep into the dichotomy of Gonzales' stage persona, where self-doubt and megalomania are just two sides of the same coin.

The screening will be hosted in our 100-seat cinema space. The event is free with booking required.
