The stranger breathing down the phone, the thump on the roof in the dead of the night, the danger lurking in the unlit street.

Part documentary, part art-house thriller, Saulwick’s interdisciplinary work, Pin Drop, explores the phenomenon of fear in our day-to-day lives, and its impact on how we hoose to live.

Built around a series of audio recordings from one-on-one interviews, Pin Drop is told through twelve voices: one live, eleven pre-recorded. The solo performer is not alone in what becomes a seemingly ‘peopled’ environment…

‘So I was out the back just reading and I felt this really strange sensation come all through my body… and I thought something has shifted in this house, something is different…’
