Dance With Me
An evocative performance for one audience member at a time, exploring the notion of inner voices: the familiar as well as the more unusual ones. Dance With Me also relates to the voices that may be part of the consciousness of a building and was originally developed for the context of an arts centre that used to be a Mental Health Asylum.
The audience member enters an empty and sparse room, only equipped with a table, a chair, a table lamp and a cassette recorder. A voice starts to address the audience member and gives basic instructions. Soon other voices join in and step by step a cacophony of voices build up and fill the room. The show ends with a surreal encounter.
The development of the performance was supported by conversations with members of the Hearing Voices Network in Bristol.
