British Library Sound Archive recording and documentation of the “Performance Matters” events, 30 April 2010. A Play For Offstage Voices is a score composed entirely of lines written to be spoken from off stage. Voices authored by well-known writers to call, shout, cry and exclaim from somewhere, above and within have been collected and choreographed into an ‘event score’ in which voices such as Beckett’s V, Lorca’s Voz and Stoppard’s voice (in the darkness) encounter each other in the marked off space they share. Also see ref. D1920; D1922-3 and D1316-D1319.
