Experience the powerful intimacy of The Human Voice

Experience the powerful intimacy of The Human Voice.

A splintering relationship becomes high art in Francis Poulenc and Jean Cocteau’s lushly operatic one-act monodrama, The Human Voice (La voix humaine). Tabitha Arthur directs soprano Barbara Paterson and pianist Gabriela Glapska in this deeply moving, complex portrait of a woman in crisis. Presented in English and set amidst the stunning imagery of top contemporary artists at {Suite} Gallery and at the Academy Galleries/Wallace Arts Trust's 28th Annual Wallace Art Awards, The Human Voice examines critical questions of communication, authenticity and artifice in a technological age, featuring tour de force performances from some of NZ's most dramatically and musically incisive artists.

Please note that The Human Voice refers to suicide. Please contact bpvoice.nz@gmail.com if you need further information on this content before booking.
