Not by Bread Alone
Nalaga’at Theater Deaf-Blind Acting Ensemble / From Israel
“One of the most remarkable, most humbling and most profoundly affecting theatrical experiences you will ever have.”
— The Mail on Sunday
Eleven deaf-blind actors from Israel’s ground-breaking Nalaga’at Theater Ensemble take audiences on a tour through their inner worlds of darkness and silence.
Eleven deaf-blind actors from Israel’s ground-breaking Nalaga’at Theater Ensemble take audiences on a tour through their inner worlds of darkness and silence. As the cast bakes bread in real time on a fully-lit stage, they tell stories through sign, movement, and spoken word that express their own magical dreams and desires. While the bread is rising in the oven, the audience gains unique access to a magical world where the senses are challenged like never before. This insightful, sensitive, once-in-a-lifetime theatrical experience comes to ArtsEmerson from rave reviews and sold-out runs in London, New York, and the company’s home city of Tel Aviv.
