A Language at War
Two actors, singer (soprano specialized in extended vocal techniques), electroacoustic music (5.1 sound system),
live and pre-recorded video, multiple video projections.
‘The limits of my language mean the limits of my world’, writes Wittgenstein in Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. A Language at War is an attempt to enact what language is when it ceases to have a meaning. Or when the meaning has been broken down to its smallest components and has become something else and something new.
