For All Ears Kate McIntosh sets up the stage as an improvised ad-hoc laboratory for a series of unusual recordings and acoustic experiments, using everyday objects and materials. Chairs are dragged, paper is torn, glasses are toppled. Sounds are gathered, recorded and played back – the action of one part of the performance providing soundtrack, background or atmosphere for another part. Along the way McIntosh – as combination curious scientist, mischievous questioner and eclectic storyteller – leads us on a distinctive journey through a diverse landscape of ideas.
All Ears is driven by McIntosh's ongoing fascination with destruction and creation, sense and nonsense, the whole and the fractured – by her playfulness with the audience, and her love of theatrical images. With an off-beat humour and moments of lucid thought, the performance balances on the thin line between experiment and entertainment.

80 minutes, in English with Czech surtitles.
