Part of Festival of Voice 2018

See the Trailer 

National Theatre Wales’ and Quarantine’s extraordinary new show invites its audience into a conversation about language with performer Jonny Cotsen – a performance built out of a fascination with what happens when we try to talk about how to live together. It’s inspired by the theatricality of language lessons, and discussions with migrants who learn English for all kinds of reasons. For business, for pleasure, for survival, to take part, to pass the test…

This exuberant A to Z of language and identity – made in Wales, but with a global perspective – pulls pop songs apart, tears grammar to pieces and invites all the languages in the room to be heard. A joyous, intimate, provocative encounter, English asks how language shapes us all and what happens to our sense of self when we don’t really know how to say who we are.

Accessible Performances
BSL interpreter – Tony Evans

Review

by Gary Raymond

“An Invitation… is a brilliantly funny physical dialogue between dancers and audience, a tireless journey through the potential of dance to edify, to force us to grow within and without”

Sonia Hughes and Jo Fong at Experimentica, Chapter Arts Centre.

“How do you get strangers to open up to each other in a very short space of time? Jo Fong and Sonia Hughes create a safe space for probing some buried truths as part of Experimentica 2018. Emma Geliot and Filiz Mehmedova joined a choreographed conversation.”
