We invite you to join a session with the Bat Choir, exploring what it is like to communicate in a “bat-like” way. This session will introduce you to strategies for human echolocation, using echoes to navigate and communicate. We will experiment with our voices and “listening sticks”, crafting objects that allow us to listen in new ways to our environment and to each other. This workshop is offered to individuals and families (minimum age 5)

Bat Choir is a collective led by Hermione Spriggs, Sarah Latto and Harsha Balasubramanian. It is an experimental project/practice in which groups of people use voices and objects to echolocate, exploring different architectures through attentive listening. Bat choir is radically inclusive. It welcomes and absorbs different publics in varying situations, starting from the premise that everyone who can speak can sing, and everyone who can hear or feel can echolocate.

Families welcome minimum age 5.
