Beyond Verbal

Beyond verbal” is a 70 minutes video recording an action of communication between two people (me and invited participant) who don`t speak the same language. They have never seen each other before they meet for the first time in front of the camera. Each of them speak their native language (Russian and Portuguese) which can`t be literally understood by another person. Trying this interaction they place themselves in experimental area of no set rules and no expectations of a definite result.

Is verbal understanding necessary to make communication work? Aside from literally perceived language what does communication consist of and is it possible to measure, control and watch this part from aside? Is it possible for non-verbal to compensate the flaws of literal understanding of speech? etc..
This kind of experiment is based on exploration of these and many other questions related to the issues of personal contact..

Video was presented in Space Alive in Prague in May.
