In the performance «Empty Voice» performers with learning disabilities present themselves directly by telling their personal stories, recalling their memories, sharing their intimate confessions and statements of their own disability, presenting their condition as a social construction and inviting to a necessary deliberation of the possibility of different social relations.
The scenes in this performance are conceived with the aim to open a new level of communication between the performers and the audience, both through the first person speech of the performers with learning disabilities and through their mutual conversation and discussion with the audience.
