The fantasy language
The insect that preludes the start of Close-Act was a giant mosquito. The mask is like a hat. Head down it’s an insect; head up it’s a “human”. Well not a normal human. A strange creature with stilts, long arms, a golden face, a strange hat and in the mouth a kind of “emergency whistle” in the shape of big golden lips. Expression was only possible with the eyes, the movement – and the whistle, of course.
Later, with other acts, we started to use a voice instead a whistle. Wow! This was something completely different. “How do I sound? Is this my voice? What do I have to say? Which language do I speak?”
According to the dictionary, jabber or gibberish is a language that is a total nonsense. Although the words don’t have an exact meaning there is a story behind every “conversation”. It gives meaning to every sentence and it provides every sentence with a logical intonation. Some songs and sentences Close-Act uses have a written gibberish text and a translation to know what it means.
The fiction becomes non-fiction. Do you understand gibberish?
