Glossolalia by Henry Bradley

Glossolalia by Henry Bradley

‘Glossolalia’ parallels a method acting class, in which actors are trained to access and utilise their unconscious and irrational nature, alongside an Accent Softening Course for Business, whereby international workers learn the ‘Standard English’ accent so as to help further their careers in the UK. Interspersed throughout are a series of scenes, including children learning phonics and reciting an absurd poem inspired by Jorge Luis Borges, that further questions our relationship to language, meaning, and pedagogy.
