Something in Your Voice performance for theatres / WIP 2020

Something In Your Voice is not finished. We did initial R&D on this project in early 2020 and created a work-in-progress performance, but the project was put into hibernation by Covid. 

Our first piece for an ensemble, the show explores themes of communication, intimacy and privacy in a networked age of algorithmic surveillance. Through a combination of text, movement, detailed sound design and structured improvisation, we look to address the ways we find ourselves entangled in each other’s lives and in the techno-capitalist structures under which we live.   

We aim to return to this work in 2024, much changed.
