Emma Bennett & Antonia Barnett-McIntosh: Accent

Using extensive transcriptions, close listening and improvisatory techniques, Accent is a duet, conversation and mutual impersonation by Antonia, a composer and Emma, a performer.

This performance is a loose reconstruction, a formal experiment, a stupid game in which Emma and Antonia attempt to impersonate one another’s voices (accents, vocal tones, intonation, sentences). They imitate imitations, talk about talking, and mispronounce words. They hear themselves again, filtered through one another. Sometimes personal, sometimes cultural. And sometimes just like music.

Please note that places for this performance are limited and booking in advance is recommended. Please call Box Office on 0117 917 2300 or use the ‘book’ button above.
