Pin Drop

TAMARA SAULWICK

Part doc­u­men­tary, part urban thriller, Pin Drop is an award-winning, audio-sensory work explor­ing the phe­nom­e­non of fear in our daily lives: how we respond to a noise in the dead of night, a shad­owy move­ment glimpsed down a dark­ened alley, or the stranger breath­ing down the phone. Draw­ing on a range of inter­views with peo­ple from six to 92 years of age, this grip­pingly inti­mate work is told through 12 voices – one live, 11 pre-recorded. House­hold objects crackle into the imag­i­na­tion as sto­ries both unnerv­ing and strangely famil­iar unfold – con­jured into life by Tamara Saulwick’s riv­et­ing solo per­for­mance and Peter Knight’s vis­ceral score.

“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
