Award winning production features visceral score by Peter Knight

Pin Drop – by Tamara Saulwick with score by Peter Knight

Winner: 2010 Green Room Award, Outstanding Production (Alternative And Hybrid Performance)
Nominated For Best Composition and Sound Design

A sudden noise that wakes you in the night. A shadowy movement glimpsed down a darkened alley. The sensation that there might be someone in the room with you. Waiting.

Part documentary, part urban thriller, Pin Drop is an immersive audio-sensory work exploring the most private of experiences – fear.

Tapping into our primal urges and subconscious anxieties, Pin Drop draws on a series of interviews with people aged six to 92. Live voice mingles with the disembodied sounds of pre-recorded conversations, household objects are transformed into potential threats, and the most familiar of spaces become strange, as the mind plots the shortest route to a safe place to hide.

Conjured into life by Tamara Saulwick’s riveting solo performance and Peter Knight’s visceral score.
