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.
