Horizon Showcase: The Talent image

On stage is a small sound booth; inside sits a woman, alone. She is a voice-over artist. Off stage, in a space never seen but only heard, two disembodied voices ask her to conjure different voices for commercials, self-help audiobooks, meditation tapes, computer games, robo-calls… anything and everything. Is she the powerful protagonist in her own narrative? A puppet for capitalism? Or something else entirely… A post-pandemic, post-human vocal soup that wonders aloud about how the human voice lives on outside the body and what kind of ghosts will haunt us when we’re gone.
