Nalaga'at Theater Deaf-Blind Acting Ensemble
Not by Bread Alone
Directed by Adina Tal
"A dreamlike, most impressive theatrical reality…
a unique and amazing ensemble of actors"
--Yediot Achronot (Israel)
Eleven deaf and blind actors lead a magical tour through their inner worlds of darkness, silence, and…bread. While the process of making, kneading, and baking dough unfolds on stage, a unique encounter occurs between the actors and the audience. Together, they re-enact vivid and distant memories, recall forgotten dreams and joyful moments, and touch the spark of creation present in every one of us--always returning to bread as a symbol of our longing for a home. From Israel's Nalaga'at Theater (Hebrew for "Please Do Touch")--the world's only deaf-blind performance ensemble of its kind--this acclaimed production is presented in partnership with VSA, the international organization on arts and disability.
