We invite you to join us in an exploration of how we listen to and with our smartphones! A new app developed at SARC will be used as a platform for discovering ways of listening that encourage creative participation and collaboration.
We invite you to listen to the world around you and to sounds of other participants, asking you to think about the role that sound plays in our everyday life. A professional theatre facilitator will join us in creating a short piece that is built around the idea of listening to people in different locations (we call this ‘distributed listening’).
Developed with support from the Arts and Humanities Research Council in a project led by Franziska Schroeder and Pedro Rebelo partnered by the Lyric Theatre, Belfast, 42nd Street in Manchester, a mental health charity and the Young Vic in London.
