Eleven deaf-blind actors from Israel’s ground-breaking Nalaga’at Theater Ensemble take audiences on a tour through their inner worlds of darkness and silence.
As the cast bakes bread in real time on a fully-lit stage, they tell stories through sign, movement, and spoken word that express their own magical dreams and desires. While the bread is rising in the oven, the audience gains unique access to a magical world where the senses are challenged as never before.
This insightful, sensitive, once-in-a-lifetime theatrical experience comes to Boston with rave reviews and sold-out runs in London, New York, and the company’s home city of Tel Aviv.
“It’s when you watch their hands at work to signal, prompt, applaud and translate for one another that you think that, just maybe, you’re starting to hear what they hear.” – The New York Times
“The actors make a piece dedicated to the human spirit. The actors voiced their hopes and dreams and the audience were treated to a glimpse of a world filled with colorful imagination.” – The London Telegraph
