A grand EU project by Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium (NTL) / Odin Teatret and 13 European co-partners
The Voice of the audience is an event made by Odin Teatret's associated partner, Forsøgssatationen in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The event is the result of an experimental project focusing on the sound identity of a theatre audience. The project is inspired by Vsevolod Meyerhold's audience sound studies and is developed by professional theatre artists and musicians in collaboration with 50 citizens from the district of Vesterbro, Copenhagen.
Over a period of 6 months a mixed group of citizens consisting of senior citizens, school children, parents, socially vulnerable, people with other ethnic background than Danish and students will develop and rehearse a sound work in 3 acts together with a conductor.
The soundscape only consists of the sounds and actions from an audience (like whispering, snoring, laughing, singing, being silent, stand up and leave, crackle with a candy bag, shouting, sighing, clapping etc. etc.).
This "work of sound" - a different and subtle concert - will be presented during the theatre festival CPH Stage (Copenhagen Stage) over the course of four days both inside and outside in urban spaces, in front of an audience of 50 people.
