Take a break from your weekend to participate in a silent LARP about the birth of language and being understood. Players are students creating sign language for the first time.
Long Description:
A game about children in 1970's Nicaragua who define what would become the official sign language of the country. Before this time, deaf people in Nicaragua had no standardized language and understanding one another was complicated. Experience the birth of a shared language by playing as a school-aged child struggling to communicate their truth to their classmates.
