Can we dissolve our sense of separation from nature by imitating its audible traces - the sound of wind, the song of birds, the patter of rain drops? Perhaps our most ultimate sense of oneness was within our mother's womb, when there was no sense of division between self and the beat of her heart. Does the act of mimicry rekindle that deep memory?

In "The Mirrored Cry" improvising vocalist Jo Truman retraces and reflects on her personal journey through vocal mimicry. For her, the voice is the bridge between self and other. In this work the voice is celebrated as a powerful vehicle for expression and for life itself.
