All who listen
A digital sound installation that re-stages Amy Jephta’s 2019 script, All Who Pass, as a geo-specific audio tour. Inspired by recent trends in digital humanities, of intersecting audio-walks with a study of historical events, All Who Listen is set in 1974: an inner-city Cape Town neighbourhood is being forcibly cleared by the apartheid regime and a family spend their last night together in their District Six home. Selected scenes from the play will be scattered as audio files around District Six for the duration of the festival. As the audience connects to the past through an app on their phones, the voices echo in their ears.
