Voice Lab - Polyglot Theatre

Voice Lab is a unique creative installation module for collecting the thoughts and opinions of children.

Children are invited one at a time into a beautifully designed, serene igloo - entirely alone. In this space they have a conversation with Voice Lab – a computer generated voice driven by a concealed live performer that asks questions, encourages opinion and regards the child as the expert.

Voice Lab encourages reflective thought and the articulation of opinions and feelings. The discussion can be completely tailored to explore children’s world views, curriculum themes, or to gather feedback on their experiences of the arts, at school or in their community.

In this creative installation, each child sits within a beautifully designed, serene pod where a computer (driven by a concealed live performer) asks questions, encourages opinion and regards the child as an expert.
