Ebisu, Sign Language Theatre Laboratory Presents
- It's Not About Ebisu -
Sign Language Theatre for Deaf and Hearing Alike World premiere: February 25, 2016, Tel Aviv-Yafo
Ebisu Sign Language Theatre Laboratory began operating in 2014 as part of The Grammar of the Body (GRAMBY) Research Project at the University of Haifa. Most of the nine Lab actors are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and all of them use Israeli Sign Language (ISL) on a daily basis. We use ISL combined with expressive gestures and physical theatre in order to develop a form of visual theatre that is aimed at both deaf and hearing spectators, with no interpreting or supertitles during the show.
