A presence stands on a hill by the sea. She tries to sing, tries to speak, but she can only hold her story like a memory in her body and look out at the ocean. Born from a performative writing process developed in VR, With words that don't exist is a devised theatrical experience exploring how we perceive ourselves in stories and relate to the characters and presences who move through them. 



The annual summer residency of innovative artists creating daring new works returns for the 9th consecutive year. Led by producers Nicolle Allen '16, Matthew Cohn '08, Emma Orme '15, and Mykel Nairne '16, VoxLab is a labratory and a performance platform for the development of the unique.
