I, Caliban: Activities
Soundscape of the Island
Get into pairs and, with your partner, find a noise that you might hear on Caliban’s island – a noise that can be repeated over and over again.
Elect an A and a B within your pair and stand as far away as possible from your partner.
The A’s close their eyes and B’s lead their partners around the space using only the noise they’ve found.
- A’s must move towards the location of the noise/partner.
- A must only move when they hear their partner.
- When they can’t hear their noise, they must remain still, and listen.
B can guide their partner around the room, making sure that they don’t bump into anyone.
A and B can then swap round.
Those making the noises should be aware of creating a sound environment with the rest of group – changing the volume, intensity and frequency of their noise, to fit in with the other pairs working in the space.
