The song is called “Against The wall”.Everyone is free to join the performance, for the aim is to build bridges between different cultures and make it easy for everyone to try how much fun signing could be. The Silent Shout group would like to encourage everyone to unlock his or her potential and be a part of the signing live performance! In order to join, you only have to learn the signs in advance from the Internet and be at the Washington Square Park. Silent Shout concept has been already done successfully in Helsinki, Stockholm and Hong Kong. In addition to leading the he flash mob choir Signmark will perform admission free.
