Earshot





​​'Earshot' is driven by Kate's lifetime obsession of eavesdropping on the private conversations of complete strangers.

​​Built using overheard stories gathered from the general public in cafes, parks and trams, 'Earshot' is an epic poem of eavesdropping, combining the Homeric tradition of oral storytelling with voice-activated text projection.
​​Part artistic surveillance exercise, part live art, part performance event, ‘Earshot' is a fly-on-the-wall insight into the lives of others: personal, epic, comic and sometimes devastating.
Season premiere:
