All I want is to be who I am
But is anyone listening?
This performance piece, combining dance, text and live music, questions our ability to listen, and challenges preconceptions of how we perceive ourselves and those around us.
It emphasizes the importance of forging human ties, be this verbal or non-verbal.
Speaking Bodies seeks to inspire a culture of dialogue between all people.
Bodies speak - are you listening?
A new work by Esther Huss in collaboration with scriptwriter A.C. Smith and composer David Sutton-Anderson
