«Come , let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.» – We speak different languages. We come from different cultural and familial backgrounds, and our communication is dependent on non-verbal communication. We act how we would like to present ourselves, and how we are supposed to behave in certain social context and associates. «Have I ever spoken properly?» investigates and demonstrates our social acts in the performing-arts format through the integration of design and applies the theory of proxemics to the spatial design of performance.
