Georgina Guy, Walter Meierjohann

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This dialogue explores the possibilities of binaural sound for contemporary theatre making and museum curation, situating sonic modes of practice in relation to particular formal experimentations demanded by the context of pandemic and exemplified by the international touring production of Blindness first staged at the Donmar Warehouse in London in 2020, and directed by Walter Meierjohann. The discussion between Meierjohann and Georgina Guy opens up the potential of sound installation as an apposite form through which to challenge visual-centric cultures of production and stage particular political and theatrical challenges, related to ideas of community and responsibility, and imagination, collaboration, and collective experience.
