Title: Sign: A Game About Being Understood
Host: Jenny Dickson
 
Nicaragua in the 1970s had no form of sign language. If you were deaf, you had simple gestures with a trusted few, likely nothing more than a form of pantomime you negotiated with your family to meet basic needs. In 1977, something happened. Fifty deaf children from across the country were brought together to an experimental school in Managua. Without a shared language to express themselves, the children did the only thing they could -- they created one. In Sign, we follow a small piece of their journey.

This is a nearly-silent, very short LARP about the organic nature of language development. Alternates will be seated.
