We were absolutely blown away by it. None of us have ever experienced anything like it. We were all in tears. We talked about it all the way home and half of the next day. We still refer back to it now. We all think we might never experience anything like it again. It was so emotional, so powerful, so brave, so painful and beautiful and so thought-provoking.
A unique performance installation exploring powerful stories of voice loss and identity through surround-sound, audio-visual, and settings of three works from the Sound Voice Project, featuring Lucy Crowe and Roderick Williams.
Video designer Luke Halls and sound designer David Sheppard collaborate for the first time with composer Hannah Conway and writer Hazel Gould to create a gripping, surround-sound, audio-visual setting of three works from the Sound Voice Project; Paul, I Left My Voice Behind and Tanja.
Each work describes a deeply personal and distinct experience, the works together invite audiences to consider wider issues of voice and identity. By turns uplifting and heart-rending, the installation is a celebration of the beauty and value of the human voice.
This event is part of the Aldeburgh Festival which runs from Friday 3 June to Sunday 26 June 2022.
