A Mouthful of Tongues celebrates the mouth as a powerful channel through which communication can take shape, form, twist, dislocate and resurrect. Stina Fors embarks on an exploratory journey through a multitude of vocal techniques (grunting, ventriloquism, tongue exercises and the imitation of dinosaur cries), in which sounds and bodies are disconcertingly dissociated. A shift takes place between modes of transmission, which clash as confusion sets in. From this organic theatre emerge fragmented stories, thoughts and emotions that belong in other places, mesmerising landscapes, of which it is possible to hear only snatches in a dialect that sounds like English but is not. A moment full of finesse, at once funny, unexpected and intriguing.
