Secret Sound Stories is an interactive, intimate and personal journey for individual listeners. Our company writes stories inspired by images and works of art belonging to an exhibition space: they are told live by hidden actors who follow and observe the listeners without being seen. The actor’s voices are transmitted live into wireless headphones giving life to a unique story, a delicate fusion between poetry and sound which for a brief moment transforms the space into a parallel world of imagination.
