In this experiment in interactive and immersive voice theatre, listeners wander through a recording object in order to access the narrative presented by the voice 'trapped' inside. As the voice transitions from helpless to collaborative to directive in tone, power dynamics shift and the audience's experience oscillates between collective and personal. The piece challenges expectations about interacting with objects, narratives and voices, and questions the degree of obligation we feels towards (what sounds like) a human voice.
