Everything is a dinosaur (Audio Theatre)
From physical theatre to audio theatre
In the fall of 2021, we produced an Audio Theatre version of the family play Everything is a Dinosaur at Teater Jævn. Director Lene Skytt did an excellent job rewriting the script, which I recorded with actors Sofie Ancher Vea and Steffen Nielsen in a studio. It was a great experience working with such talented actors who brought the characters to life with their voices.
During the recording, we took several takes to ensure that we captured the right emotions and tone we wanted. Actor Sofie Ancher Vea was instrumental in selecting the best takes and making suggestions for edits. In post-production, I edited and transferred the sound design I had made for the physical play to the audio version. I slowly built up the rest of the sound design, ensuring that it supported the storytelling.
The sound design and music were created using the same site-specific concept as the theater play, using found sounds related to the natural environments we toured. We also added a few new sound effects using everyday household items to bring some elements to life that the actors would normally use gestures to show. This technique added a new dimension to the audio version, making it even more engaging for listeners.
The whole play was divided into seven small episodes and shared as a podcast on popular platforms. It’s a great way for people who missed the live shows to enjoy the play anytime, anywhere. You can listen to the result on the player on this site. Overall, it was a fantastic experience working on this project, and I’m proud of what we achieved.
