Theatre Direct Studio at Artscape Wychwood Barns
by Tristan R. Whistan and Moynan King
Through an exploration of voice, trace transforms a private story into a performative experience integrating sound, video, installation and live performance. Using archival recordings taken before and during Tristan R. Whiston’s gender transition from female to male, along with recent recordings and live vocals, trace explores the idea that change is constant and we are always becoming someone new.
We were brought in to create the physical environment in which the soundscape would be presented. The three beach huts became tiny interactive recording studios and the plinths that mimicked dock pilings held speakers. Hand-drawn instructions for audience participants and subtle ocean-breeze smells added to the atmosphere.
