The stranger breathing down the phone, the thump on the roof in the dead of the night, the danger lurking in the unlit street.
Part documentary, part art-house thriller, Tamara Saulwick’s interdisciplinary work Pin Drop explores the phenomenon of fear in our day-to-day lives, and its impact on how we choose to live.
Built around a series of audio recordings from one-on-one interviews, Pin Drop is told through twelve voices; one live, eleven pre-recorded. The solo performer is not alone in what becomes a seemingly ‘peopled’ environment and it looks at how we can become engulfed by fear but also how, in some instances, we manage to overcome it.
