Third Coast Review- Recommended

"...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." There's language spoken, sung, etched on gravestones and carved in sand. The only actual sentences are spoken by an official voiceover announcing a test of the emergency broadcast system (remember those?)."

Picture This Post- Recommended

"...This reviewer was intrigued throughout, finding the disconnected words and variety of theatrical elements of Discourse Without Grammar as a probing question of the purpose of language. Discourse Without Grammar is a match for those interested in experimenting with language and technology through theatre. This show isn't for anyone looking for a more straight-forward and easily understandable story."
