In Voicing Pieces, your own voice is staged to become the protagonist. In the intimacy of an isolated sound booth, guided by a simple score, you become spectator of your own voice.

Aren’t our own voices always inauthentic and uncanny? Who is speaking, when your own voice speaks? Rather than recognizing yourself in the stranger, Voicing Pieces is an invitation to recognize the stranger in yourself.

‘It is a long journey, although it lasts only half an hour, which eventually brings you back home to yourself, to your own voice. And it will never sound the same again. Magical.’

Fierce Says

A performance in which you become the performer, for an audience of yourself. This is a beautiful and unusual installation that we also found strangely empowering. Be sure to book quick as slots are extremely limited.
