The Voice in Your Head

Anton Krueger

The Voice in Your Head is a multi-genre participatory game exploring the nature of thinking, expressing, connecting. The Voice in Your Head offers a lively commentary on the nature of performance, it’s a playful series of experiments around what it means to be ‘actor’ and ‘audience’ within the shared space of Zoom.  Drawing on his research into mindfulness, Anton Krueger presents a live exploration of our connections with our inner thought processes. The work grows out of his interest in what it means to see and be seen; to speak and be spoken. Each audience is restricted to only 11 people, who must be prepared to have their cameras and microphones on and be willing to play. The Voice in Your Head grapples with its online medium, playing with shifts between different perspectives, exploring how we relate to our inner monologues.

Genre: Theatre / Performance Art / Digital Arts

NB: Only one person per registration will be admitted. All audience members need to be able to see and hear each other. Attendees must have a working microphone and agree to having their faces visible. They must be able to log in with a PC or laptop, as a phone screen will not be big enough to see the other participants. They also need to have headphones with which to access sound. They must also have downloaded Zoom in advance. A brief orientation in Zoom will be provided, but it is helpful if attendees have already familiarised themselves with the platform. The Zoom Room will be opened 10 minutes early to help people who feel they may need additional assistance in getting set up. Unfortunately, any attendee who does not comply with these requests will not be able to view or participate in this production.
