The Voice as a Theatrical Journey
In Voicing Pieces, one's own voice take central stage. Within the solitude of the sound booth, with a basic score as a guide, the audience is invited to become a spectator of their own vocalization. This act of speaking and listening to one's own voice simultaneously is transformed into a theatrical and choreographic experience, reshaped with each individual's interpretation of the score. The voice is transformed into a platform of action, a spectacle, or a surprise. Is not one's own voice always a little uncanny and foreign? Who is speaking when one's own voice speaks? Rather than recognizing oneself in a stranger, Voicing Pieces is a chance to recognize the stranger within oneself.
