'Now Listen' is an exploration into communication and perception through adornment and body gestures that set the tone for the conversation. Like catching up over coffee with an old friend, the speaker is highly narrated but without the comfort of relying on spoken language. A monologue is formed through the use of percussion, hand movements and accessories which then asks the viewer to pay closer attention in order to understand the details.
