Please Touch

Posted Apr 29 2011 12:00am
Though they cannot hear or speak, and they are the Israeli actors in the Nalaga'at full-length, professional stage performance. Their unique theatrical presentation captivates audiences by blending touch, mime, sign language and music in a show about dreams and disability.

"It's everything good theater actually is and should be and so seldom is nowadays," says Adina Tal, director of Nalaga'at Center ( nalagaat.org.il ), an Israeli troupe made up of 11 deaf and blind actors from Tel Aviv-Jaffa. In Hebrew, na lagaat means "please touch."

Maybe it’s because Ashley is deafblind, and maybe you won’t feel the same things I did when viewing the preview below, but it brought tears to my eyes and hope to my heart.

Enjoy and have a happy, touch-filled weekend!
