ear-whispered, an extensive survey of artist Tania El Khourys work, features her internationally acclaimed Gardens Speak.

The five works of ear-whispered also include the one-on-one performance As Far As My Fingertips Take Me, two immersive video installationsStories of Refuge and Camp Pauseboth produced as a collaboration through Beirut-based Dictaphone Group, and the world premiere of Tell Me What I Can Do, commissioned by Bryn Mawr College.
