ebisu tumb

In a new production, Sfat Ha-hem (THEIR language), the actors of Ebisu – the Sign Language Theatre Laboratory -- explore what happens when the use of one’s native language is forbidden – for “educational reasons”.  Seven actors return to the classroom and the schoolyard.  With a unique language of the stage that blends sign language with physical theatre, and in the politics of minority and majority language prowess, the actors teach themselves and the audience a few lessons in life science, social science, and the humanities. THEIR Language will be ​performed​ in Kelim Center, Bat Yam on July 12-16 and in the School of the Arts, Haifa University on July 19. Please see posters for more information. see trailer
