Participatory performance during CommonsLab, Indisciplinarte, Terni (IT), 7/9/2019
The participatory performance The Voice of a City is built like a collective reading session where each audience member is
given a part of the script to read out loud lines belonging to a particular protagonist.
For one evening you are invited to become someone else. Over the course of the evening twenty people from across Europe share their stories that blend with the stories of those present in the room.
