Tongue twisters, no purpose! We love to play - with each other and against each other. Some want to win, some have to lose. That's the way it is, because there are rules. But when does play get serious? And who lays down the rules - of how we should deal with each other, divide spaces, learn languages? Which language does one's own voice have at all? And has my body internalized any language(s)? Can it act out language rules, put rules to the test or even change realities? Six dancers and five young people are challenging the rules of different, international game instructions with their (body) languages: tongues are getting bigger. Curling up. Babbling with laughter. Clicking purposefully. Kissing purposelessly. Twitching sensually. Tasting. Getting sour. Getting twisted.
