‘tongue’ shows a trilogy of films that observe and dramatise niche educational programmes and surgical procedures designed to improve English pronunciation and entrepreneurial performance within globalised contemporary work environments.
In the films, speech and behaviour are recognised as bodily sites that can, and must, be adapted in order to perform sufficiently in a climate of expected English language skills and self-employment requirements. The films use both the conventions of observational cinema and theatre as a way to navigate through the different levels of performance taking place in the subject matter itself.
