'If Mouth Could Speak' is a dramatic monologue slicing laser-deep into the brain of an immigrant troubled by suicide. Accompanied by a live score of electronic music and sound.
Midnight. Peckham. Danny suffers from insomnia and agonises perpetually over his obsession with death. Tonight he takes the city by foot, contemplating killing himself. Amidst waves of surreal language and high-paced spoken word poetry, London takes the form of a real woman whom with Danny reasons with the whole night.
Together they dissect the question of suicide, the hassle of urban life; traffic and pollution, homesickness, isolation. A tornado of words: the expression of his suicidal breakdown. Danny recovers. On his way back to Peckham, he gets hit by a car. A violent car-crash which sends him into a grave coma. This is his comatose brain going back and forth in time, coming back to life.
