Choreographed, written and performed by Elizabeth Chitty.

Communication/Language/Information
Modes:
1. dance/action
2. image (video, photos, polaroid, xerox)
3. spoken script

Political Context/Current Events
1. Through a semiotic perception of dance I arrived at grossly, blatantly reduced movement such as the sign systems of semaphore, deaf mute language, punk rock dancing.
2. Information is communicated differently by the language of live action/behaviour and image, different again by moving or still image.
3. The political-paranoia persona of the videotapes super-imposed a narrative.
