Discourse Without Grammar is a fascinating visual pastiche, a modern vaudeville show. Directed and edited by Skye Fort, 11 performers in five countries have created video performances that “investigate hollow words, empty promises, and collaboration without connection.”
Nancy Bishop, Third Coast Review
Costume and gorgeous make up design – all created by the cast members themselves within their homes— appropriately plays into the abstract, other worldly experience of the piece.
