Description of performance Live, spoken word performance
Summary ‘Earshot' is a contemporary performance work by Kate Hunter and collaborators. Part live art event, part undercover surveillance operation, part musical interpretation of the Australian vernacular, 'Earshot' is driven by theatre-maker Kate Hunter's lifetime obsession of eavesdropping on the private conversations of complete strangers. A collaboration with electroacoustic musician Jem Savage and performer/composer Josephine Lange, ‘Earshot's experimental approach to story uses voice-activated text to project words into the theatre space in real time as those words are spoken.
