A ballet with hands.
An excerpt from Pete Moraites.com: “This piece began with my long time fascination with sign language and led me to begin learning ASL.
“The intention was to make poetry with hands, by exploring the ideas of hypnotic poetry or poetic hypnosis, and by using the hands as fluid dancing forms… in those bits the poetry of hands resembles ASL like ee cummings poetry resembles a dictionary… they use the same forms and structures.”
