No words to go around

Alice Jacobs [UK]

2018.06.06 - 2018.06.10

Words are not needed when movement is used to talk. Communication in most contexts is about expressing signifiers, for instance Tatsumi Hijkata's method is to ‘express without expressing.’ *

This saying defines how we use symbols: humans share associations regardless of language.

Bodily movements act as triggers for communication instead of words when language is no longer the form of communication.

Jacobs will use performance gestures to activate a relatable dialogue between audience and action.
