About

We See Fireworks is a performance archive of audience voices. A curated programme of memories whispered softly into the darkness, and spinning stories as if the moment were still unfolding.

Over 250 recordings reveal the evocative memories of performative moments. Whispered by strangers, these words sear into our consciousness, until our deepest memories become yours.

They talk of religious ceremonies, accidents, lovers? meetings, loss, homesickness, adolescence, fair grounds, car parks, fetish clubs and school halls.

'Helen Cole's Fireworks, is a performance archive and an archive-performance as simple as it is brilliant, exemplifying the opening possibilities of a new form: no stage, no performers, but a deeply meaningful experience.'
Realtime, Australia
