Through the Spirit
A show with an ensemble of deaf-blind actors (with dual disability)
The government has decided to conduct a scientific research that examines the capabilities of people with disabilities. Do they fit for a job that is not especially optimized for them? Can they integrate into the economy and increase productivity?
During their attempts to join the workforce, we are slowly being exposed to the desires, dreams, struggles and comporomises of people with disabilities.
In it’s new original production, Na Laga’at theatre reveals the complex processes that occur on stage. It uses an alternative approach that combines visual and physical theatre with circus arts and tactile sign language. This theatrical language puts the deaf-blind in the center and along with their interpreters and seeing-hearing actors, enables them to become a communicative work of art.
