Tongues is a confessional and lyrical contemporary performance exploring the contrast, conflict and affinity between faith and sexuality.

The hospital air conditioner is in need of service again. Four bodies awaiting identification and autopsy, wake up at the morgue, in anticipation of the afterlife, if there is one.  They have as much human consciousness as they have warmth. In and out of awareness, the audience amble and hasten with them through their dreams, memories, fears and revelations.

This interdisciplinary interactive piece is a la petite mort of real-life confessions, reflections and imaginations gathered from people holding differing histories, beliefs and gender identities, from ancient to present.

What happens when the air conditioner is finally repaired and the cold temperature is restored?

Featuring Nora Samosir, Faizal Muhammad, Walter Hanna & Serena Ho. Creative direction by Sean Tobin and Jason Wee (MFA’05).
