Questioning the concept of language learning as the key to social integration, LIKE combines online lessons on how to serve a tennis ball with spoken poetry. The authority of the voice suggests meaning to each sound and plays with the transition between single vowels, words and mistakes. The moving image invites the viewer to imitate a reproduced pattern of movements. When repeated often enough, participation is promised.
