Say, What? focuses on the interaction between two people who slide between using and abandoning codified language. As the audience encounters various conversations that are set up in space using sign language as a point of entry, the role of gesture is re-interpreted and de-mystified within the realm of communication. By lending itself to abstract proportions, this piece opens up a world of meaning-making that is both embodied and visceral in nature.
