Here is the voice you used when you told a lie, the one you spoke with in your dreams, the one you used when you were trying not to cry, the voice you speak to yourself in. The Voice Pickler dissects each voice strand by strand. She’s learnt how to see them, catch them, and she can hear every echo and roar.
But are there some voices that are too hard to hear?
The Voice Pickler is an immersive theatre experience for audiences aged 7+ in collaboration with Laura Davis and Megan Taylor, and with support from Lyra Theatre.
Thimble Collective is Kim Donohoe and Emma Nutland. Together they create work that challenges the form of traditional children’s theatre, creating visceral, visually stimulating experiences.
Laura Davis is an illustrator/artist living and working in Edinburgh. Through a mixture of painting, printmaking, drawing and collage Laura uses spontaneous and intuitive mark making to challenge ideas of image making within illustration.
Megan Taylor graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2012 with a BA (Hons) in Communication Design, specialising in illustration. Her working process aims to challenge the perception of the viewer and question the meaning of set/spatial design.
Day passes are available for £7/£5 – please call the Arches Box Office on 0141 565 1000 to reserve your shows. See the full Into The New programme here.

“Where can you see tomorrow’s work today? The answer is The Arches.”
Producing and presenting risk-taking work from local and international artists and companies, the building has boasted performances over the past two years from Derevo, The TEAM and Taylor Mac, hosted the National Review of Live Art and New Territories festivals and seen blistering performances from boundary-pushing artists and companies such as John Moran, Adrian Howells, Ontroerend Goed and Quarantine as part of 2010’s BEHAVIOUR festival, our annual celebration of the live experience.
The Arches is also Scotland’s leading provider of support for emergent artists and performance practitioners, providing a year-long programme of opportunities including Artist in Residence programmes and our two annual awards, Platform 18: New Directions and the Brick Award, as well as showcasing raw work from homegrown talent such as Nic Green and Rob Drummond in Arches LIVE, our annual festival of brave new work.
Our dedicated Creative Learning programme offers even further-reaching opportunities for development across a broad range of social groups, with events ranging from urban music production course Tigerstyle and the newly launched Arches Community Choir, to mentoring schemes, professional development projects and off-site performance work with diverse social groups.
Words from Jackie Wylie, The Arches’ Artistic Director, following the tragic death of Adrian Howells:
“All at The Arches are devastated by the loss of Adrian Howells this week. He was our Artist in Residence and The Arches was his creative home. But more than that, he was a dear friend and companion in life to many of us here.
So many would say that there truly was no one like him, who personified love, generosity and the deepest type of empathy and desire to understand those lucky enough to have met him. With great humour he was able to create an instant connection with anyone he encountered. He was able to translate this desire to nurture and connect into his performance practice and in doing so leaves behind not only an incredible and influential body of work but a multitude of audience members across the world who have in some way been transformed by these encounters.
He supported, encouraged and was at the heart of an entire community of artists in Glasgow who will miss him terribly.”
