As a part of Zuppa Theatre's exceptional project This is Nowhere, 'No Speaking' was an installation in the Glitterbean Cafe in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The theme for this location was 'harmony and balance'.
After tying over a hundred pieces of grapevines found throughout Nova Scotia to lengths of cotton thread, they were suspended on location in sentences at eye level. They represent an abstract idea of language - be it through the written work, music stanzas or general symbolism. After returning to Canada after spending two years abroad, I found it incredibly difficult to describe how much I missed the calm serenity of Canadian nature. While London has a surplus of beautiful green space - it was not mine. And it did not have the same mood as Canada.
This piece is meant to be an incoherent representation of these thoughts.
