The Echo of Silence is a performance which describes the vicissitudes of the voice of an actor and the strategems she invents to "interpret" a text.

The voice of the actor and the text presented to the spectators compose the music of a performance. In theatre, which seems to be free of the codes we find in music, the actor needs to create a labyrinth of rules, references and resistance to follow or refuse so as to achieve a personal expression and recognise his/her own voice.

Actress: Julia Varley

Duration: 90 min.

First performed in 1991.
