The Museum of Dead Words
The Museum of Dead Words, with your tour guide, Dyalekt
Directed by Andrew Scoville and curated by Kristen A. Crouch
An interactive Hip Hop Theatre Experience Exploring Communication in the Age of the Internet
If you've ever found yourself in an unexpectedly heated argument on the internet and don't know how you ended up in a dithering pile of semantics over days of your life you'll never get back, you are not alone.
MC/Playwright/Educator Dyalekt spent a year researching internet comments to find out what words turned conversations into fights and ultimately died on the internet. He has turned this research into a one man show/museum tour/art installation/rap album (happening all at once!) that explores how communication through the typed word is changing language rapidly, how words can lose their meaning and become weaponized, and how to find empathy and true connection with each other.
Join Dyalekt for a guided museum tour where we exhibit 11 words that died on the internet, mourn their passing, move forward together with more empathy and understanding.
