              Helene Cixous told Le Monde in 1977 that she no longer went to the theatre. The theatre she wanted would stress the auditory, giving voice to ways of being that had previously been silenced. The author explores the rich possibilities of this audio-vocal form of theatre, and what ...it can reveal of the auditory self.
