LOVE STRIPPED BACK

Written in the middle of the last century by two enfants terribles of the French art scene, Poulenc and Cocteau, The Human Voice is an uncompromising performance that challenges the audience to play detective in unravelling lies both spoken and unspoken.

This site-specific production will take place inside a hotel room, bringing audiences within inches both physically and emotionally to the performer. A woman waits for the phone to ring. To talk to her ex-lover one more time. This is a tale of love stripped down, the lies we tell to others and ourselves, an unflinching examination of the human condition in 45 minutes of drama you cannot look away from

The opera will be performed by two of Australasia’s finest sopranos Amanda Atlas and Fiona McAndrew.

Duration: This performance is 45 minutes long.
