THE HOUSE... a place of comfort, shelter and security. It can speak to us, too, of darker and more troubled things. The walls, corners and stairs all have their memories and associations.
Past inhabitants leave their marks, voices and stories in the woodwork, fixtures and fittings. If bricks and walls had words, if cellars and attics could talk, what would they speak of?
You are invited to take a solitary journey around a strange yet familiar house, while Volcano presents an atmospheric, funny and spine-tingling examination of how we live between four walls.
Reasons to be Silent features performance, video and sound inspired by works as diverse as The Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard, The Dance of Death by August Strindberg and The Good Housekeeping Guide!
Reasons to be Silent was performed at 5 Llandaff Road, Cardiff in association with CHAPTER, at The Lord Mayor's Mansion House, Ffynone, Swansea in association with TALIESIN and SWANSEA INSTITUTE (now UWTSD) and at Bromfield House, Mold (in association with THEATR CLWYD and NEWI (now GLYNDWR UNIVERSITY).
