A sudden noise that wakes you in the night. A shadowy movement glimpsed down a darkened alley. The sensation that there might be someone in the room with you. Waiting.
Pin Drop is a spellbinding exploration of terror and suspense through sound. Combining theatre, performance and music, this award-winning production creates a platform for stories of fear and threat to flow via our host, Tamara Saulwick. Part documentary, part urban thriller, Saulwick’s work taps into our primal urges and subconscious anxieties, drawing on a series of interviews with people aged 6 to 92. Live voice mingles with the disembodied sounds of pre-recorded conversations, household objects are transformed into potential threats, and the most familiar of spaces become strange, as our minds open a portal to both real and imagined fears.
Winning a Green Room Award for Outstanding Production, Pin Drop has left reviewers and punters alike breathless.
“It’s remarkable theatre, executed with an exact brilliance that makes its sensual vividness all the more powerful. The theatre becomes, quite nakedly, a kind of psychic echo chamber. This is not to be missed.” Alison Croggon, Theatre Notes
“”With what can only be described as pure genius, Ms Saulwick and her expert team of artists and eleven additional recorded voices, has created one of the most extraordinarily involving and rewarding theatrical experiences. Unforgettable. Go.” Geoffrey Williams, Stage Whispers
Artists: Bluebottle (Ben Cobham & Frog Peck), Michelle Heaven, Peter Knight, Harriet Oxley and Tamara Saulwick
