Speak Like No One in Particular is about finding a voice to speak. This very personal research and performance is an investigation of ‘emotional borders’ and how geography and social hierarchies emerge within the spoken voice. Exploring the ‘lexically light’ gaps between words that characterise Eszter Némethi’s spoken English voice, she explores how the different hesitations, fillers, stutters, intonations and strategies of escape communicate what is silenced. Following her own voice through Europe and in conversation with different friends and experts, Eszter Némethi is constructing a text for collective reading by a participating audience and written for a listener afar. Playing with two differently engaged audiences and a formal frame between radio and theatre, the research opens a space to think about the politics of speaking and listening, voicing and belonging and how this relates to integration, emancipation and xenophobia.
