‘Voices, knowledge and ignorance: Reflections on experiences of “Company”‘, St Chad’s College Chapel, Durham, 20 January 2017, 12-2pm
Renowned Beckett scholars and performers have been invited to challenge their knowledge of the author and of the text by attending a performance of ‘Company’ in the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Durham.
Hearing the Voice is delighted to announce that experiential audio performances of Samuel Beckett’s ‘Company’ will take place in the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Durham Cathedral from 16 to 20 January 2017.
Both moving and mysterious, Beckett’s Company is the story of a voice that comes ‘to one on his back in the dark’. This voice, which the protagonist can neither verify or name, ‘tells of a past’. In a performance of the text that is at the same time immersive and exploratory, the audience are invited to become the central character in this enigmatic story world.
Hearing the Voice and Empty Shop are delighted to invite you to the screening of ‘Healing Voices.’ This screening is the first to take place in the North East, and is part of our mini film festival.
On Friday 13th of January, join interdisciplinary sound artist Richard Crow, novelist Alex Pheby, and academic Angela Woods as Durham’s Empty Shop is given over to an exploration of Schreber’s world.
