Voyeur Piano explores urban experiences through a live solo performance in Cape Town’s inner city. The philosopher Michel de Certeau suggests that a city can be experienced in two ways: as voyeur, observing from above; and as walker, experiencing the city first-hand by walking its streets. The voyeur observes the city in a detached way, whereas the walker has a physical and experiential relationship with urban spaces. Voyeur Piano addresses both audiences – the walkers and the observers – and in so doing plays with conventional notions of access and audience. All levels of experience interact with and alter each other: hearing (the music, the city), seeing (the performer from far away, the texturology of the city), feeling (the music, the city, the performer, the space).
