TALK TO ME, by Brian O'Mahoney, is a new performance work that explores anxieties around communication by establishing new languages based on image and gesture. Nonsensically but seriously investigating interpersonal relations, TALK TO ME is a romp through new and absurd physical dialects. Constantly finding more elaborate and obtuse ways to communicate, O’Mahoney seeks to interrogate the source of our collective anxiety around communication.
