Mother Tongue Space


A base for a series of performances investigating the possibilities of communication in languages. 2016- Present


Mother Tongue Space examines alternative possibilities of oral communication. Deriving from the creative and emotional potential of speaking in one’s mother tongue, it simply aims to create new, personal bridges built on trust. Nobody is a stranger on an outsider.
The project constitutes of a loose, ongoing series of events, and also acts as a research base in the no-man’s lands of language communication.

by شقایق سیروس and Magdalena Jadwiga Härtelová

Co kdybychom spolu každý mluvili svojí rodnou řečí?
What if we'd talk to each other in our mother tongue?
چطور میشود اگر به زبان مادریمان با هم صحبت کنیم؟
