Two artists, Vesna Mačković from Croatia and Brazilian artist Robson Catalunha, selected from numerous Vesna’s international collaborations on 4 continents, in this performance work will examine their communicational (in)capabilities caused by completely different mother languages.  During their artistic journeys, their experiences and artistic collaborations as a source of voices and voices of people in different cultures, languages and spheres of social life was created. From this starting point, the two artists will explore, through frightening but also comical comparisons of today’s political voices and vocalizations, and through experimentation with primal voices from prehistoric to present-day civilized man, how much the humanoid’s communication skills have actually changed over the historical ages and centuries.

What are you saying and what am I saying?  What is my speech and what is yours? Do you recognize my voice or is everything I speak out of myself foreign to you?

Using the methods of physical theater, this text-and-voice experiment will lead artists to examine each other through the languages ​​of their bodies.Where are they from?  Where are they going? Do we recognize their speech?  Where do two of us are ending and where do we all start?
