Peter Cook & Kenny Lerner: Flying Words Project

Allen Ginsberg said that the Beat Generation’s approach was guided by the desire to make images with words. According to Ginsberg, the Flying Words Project clearly pulls this off. The duo, made up of the Americans Peter Cook and Kenny Lerner, has been successfully performing on the international scene for 25 years. In their first visit to Montreal, these exceptional artists will present a sophisticated and incomparable work on language and the moving body. The duo works in American Sign Language (ASL) and in English. A rare (all too rare) occasion to discover one of the world’s many sign languages and a very singular art form that has emerged from the deaf community.

The show is in ASL and in English with French subtitles. The discussion period following the show will also be interpreted from ASL to LSQ. Organized in collaboration with the Société Culturelle Québécoise des Sourds and the Fondation des Sourds du Québec.
