Bald Theater Event: Voices and Noises from Shakespeare
by Maria Ristani
Sound Installation and Workshop (Wed 31/5, New Wing, 18:30-21:00)
“There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot.” (John Cage)
On Wednesday 31/5, the Bald Theater Group of the department will be presenting its recordings inspired by William Shakespeare’s plays.
You are invited to join us in a “sound exhibition” which will take place in all rooms of the New Wing (01,02, 03 & 04).
Walk through the four rooms and immerse in voices from Shakespeare as these have been (re)visited by members of our group. Hear Shakespeare's lines murmured, sung, whispered, recited in your (m)other tongue, and blending with music (project run by Katerina Kitsi, Despina Kalaitzidou and Tzeni Klidona, and in co-operation with the speech laboratory of our department).
Parallel to our sound exhibition there will be a sound workshop running for students interested in working with sound. We’ll present our own soundscape work inspired by an extract from William Shakespeare’s The Tempest and we'll experiment with transforming a text into a “sound story”.
