“Sounds of longing and fear”
Our thoughts, emotions, fears, longing and hopes all have sounds. As part of Foolish Peoples immersive theatre piece "The woods trapped at the edge of midnight", "Sounds of longing and fear" explores this hidden landscape of sound within, opening up the possibility of listening inwards to both the audience members and the performers. The project specifically explores 'spontaneous' inner sounds, the sounds we might hear but we don't feel we are controlling or even are entirely sure where they come from - inside or outside. it sonically delve deep into the sounds we might not always want to hear, the sounds of fear late at night, the sounds of longing for somewhere else. Using text, words and objects, acting as a prompts or triggers for both performers and audience to listen inwards. and explore an inner landscape of sounds. These silent sound objects where also used as part of my performance to connect and communicate with both audience and other performers.
