Parlami

"Parlami" (Talk to me) is a collaboration with Giovanni Moio, who uses the Italian Sign Language LIS everyday, and the LIS translator Maddalena Abbate. It was inspired by the variety of Napolitan gestures and by a research on the evolution of the expressive gesture that becomes first sign and then language. The two actors interpret a poem which explores the world of gesture,written for the occasion, using LIS in order to create a choreography with their hands. The signifier and the signified overlap in this "dance of hands".
