Soho Calls | Laura Cooper

Soho Calls (5.15)

The name “Soho” derives from an old English hunting call, an adaption of ‘Seeho’ which in old hunting lingo means ‘seen a hare’. In Soho calls, six female performers re-enact a hunt, communicating with their voices alone and the non-linguistic sounds of ancient hunting calls. A sound arrangement develops in the public space of Soho, specifically up and around Rupert St, which leads to Berwick street and market. The hunting calls are juxtaposed with the pre-existing urban sound environment and creating an alternative kind of hunting ritual.

Laura is in the postgraduate media department at the Slade.
