Have you ever thought how does a blind actor know where he needs to be on stage? How does a deaf-blind actor know his turn to go on stage? And how do they communicate with each other?
Mordy Weis (deaf-blind actor) and Mohammad Shaqqur (blind actor), both actors at the production “Edgar”, presents how participants with sensory complexities involved in producing a Theater production and how these complexities are overcome at the NLG Theater, the only deaf, blind and deaf-blind theater in the world.
By using their senses, Mordy and Mohammad expose the audience to a new fascinating world of interpersonal communications. Throughout the workshop, the two reveal how deafness and blindness are not an obstacle in the cultural creation process. They will demonstrate different communication methods used at the theater and how what some considered a disability, uses as ability in the NLG Theater.
