A choreographic journey into the world of language…
Language fools is an arena for try-outs, an constantly altering experience, centered around communication. A work about listening, about being listened to, about who commands communication, about the outstpoken and the non-spoken rules regarding individuals in a group.
We’ve picked out vocalsounds from its contexts and created structures which deals with their relation to movement. We’ve created an arena for try-outs of language and movement. A system which we hold up together. A game between itself and the experience, a way of meeting both oneself, other bodies and objects.
Language fools is a work about listening, about responsiveness, about daring to stay in a mood of exploration.A constant testing done with one’s own body, with language being created, together and alone.
