Radio Works! on Lamentations

“We respond to gestures with an extreme alertness and, one might almost say, in accordance with an elaborate and secret code that is written nowhere, known to none, and understood by all”. Edward Sapir

Kaitlin Prest speaks with Sandeep Bagwati and the performers involved in his gestural theatre project: researching the stories told through the language of gesture. How does the body experience displacement? What does the body remember? Studying the body language of four Life Stories interviews, the project put together a performance piece entitled Lamentations. Listen to the insights and challenges that came through this process on the Monday Morning After program on CKUT 90.3 FM at 8:45.
