Don’t Look At The Finger presents a wedding ceremony where a couple meet for the first time, seeking connection through ritual, combat and signed languages. As the ceremony proceeds, gestures of a ritualistic sign language becomes combative, blending it with Kung Fu and transforming costumes to create a new physical and visual language. With an unusual take on the action-romance genre, wordless physical dialogue becomes both intimate and stylized. Individual and collective identities are questioned through visually arresting costumes combining West African wedding attire with Japanese inspired combat clothes.

Access: Highly Visual / No or Little Text

A Film and Video Production, commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella with Manchester Art Gallery and QUAD.
Supported by Arts Council England and Jerwood Choreographic Research Fund.
