Join Israeli dancer and poet Tami Assouline to perform her poetry and discuss together with professor Marco Di Giulio, the history, memory and identity of the Israeli deaf community.

In her performances, Tami rejects the hegemony of the spoken word and describes her poetry as “a purely visual work of art—an expression of my movement and freedom in my own language.” Removed from the strictures of Hebrew, her creative work explores such themes as love, grief, and the sensuality of the body.

This event is part of the “Performing Disability in Israel” series, and is held in conjunction with Professor Ilana Szobel’s groundbreaking course, “Disability Cultures: Art, Film and Literature of People with Disabilities.” See other upcoming events at Schusterman Center programs website.
