Local Talk is the human social microcosm, whispered or shouted.

It has detail of the daily and urgency which makes a whole generation of movement. It has a message to the single other human and a message to the whole populous gathered around. Its duets and trios, arrangements and fractures are sudden and cutting, they dive straight into their fleshy state to instantly reveal their nature.

The hanging chalk-board, the chalk, the wipe and the ropes from which the board is suspended are the floating place for the written word to accompany the spoken word and dancing bodies. Both bodies and words are written from the gut and leave utterances in the air.
