Words as (but also, more so) actions of Speaker and Listener
together-alone. Text as the line between, around, players; Conversationally, you hold me.

W takes the stage, rouses S and sits on-tip-of-tongue.

S: “(Hard Spoken words,
Fake talk stumbling block)”

W moves centre stage
S and L exchange glances
glances glancing
off laaaashes

W gestures to L, seated

S and L swap

S: “wwww”
Repeat

TAKE NO LAY DOWN performs text, sometimes materially. Punctuation acting out stage directions.
Linguistic structures, speech textures and mis-reading are played out,
Develop the skills to talk to strangers,
Not afraid to express my words,
Stay in touch.
