Bumm, krach, peng presents a figure of an unusual boy, who does not talk words but communicates with sounds and music instead. If each everything has its own sound, then he can describe the world and express himself simply by playing them. However, when the boy discovers his new language and presents it to his parents, the doctors, teacher and his school mate, he is confronted by refusal. They all see his creativity, imagination and uniqueness as a disturbance that needs to be corrected. In the world subjected to rules and social conventions, there is no room for a rattling child. He has to learn human language and comfort to the majority. As the boy is growing up, he is confronted by his individuality and needs to look for a way how to retain his individuality in the world of limitations and prohibitions.

In the performance, the actors and musicians ask themselves what would happen with each one of us if we were to become a noise-making child. They present his story by playing and animating multitude of different instruments and sound-producers, created out of everyday objects. They are developing a genre of sound theater in which sound is equal to the other elements of theater.
