A unique, immersive performance installation
exploring powerful stories of voice loss and identity
Composer Hannah Conway and writer Hazel Gould collaborate with video designer Luke Halls and sound designer David Sheppard to create three gripping, surround-sound, audio-visual settings from The Sound Voice Project.
Each is a deeply personal and distinct experience. By turns uplifting and heart-rending, it is a celebration of the beauty and intrinsic value of the human voice.
Written after many hours of interviews and collaborative conversations with Paul Jameson, who was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2017.
