We are interested in the opportunities and challenges of prosopopoeia: speaking / singing through the experience of another person, fictional/ historical/living. This question is relevant to creative writers, singers, actors, directors (especially of verbatim theatre), and also to their audiences/readers. And we might add a further question: what does prosopopoeia - and the debates about it - tell us about the power of the voice to tell stories (without text!).

In this conversation we are interested in exploring the relationships between that ‘parallel’ text, the performing/speaking/singing body and the dramaturgy and scenography of performance. How can integrated aesthetic and creative captioning offer new opportunities for those relationships and for the performance/artwork as a whole? How can captions be creative, inclusive and enabling for all? What are the challenges?
