Spoken Word Theater

Die taube Zeitmaschine (Michaela Caspar / Possible World)

If we look for the history of the Deaf in archives and libraries, we tend to find mostly hearing people and their perspective on deafness and signed languages. The hearing have documented the history of the Deaf. But what do the Deaf have to say?The Deaf Time Tunnel is a play about the history of the Deaf, performed by Deaf and hearing actors for hearing and Deaf audiences. It uses historical sources, interviews with survivors, and improvisation based on the personal experience of the performers, and presents these through live acting, film, live cam, discussion, and music.
In order to connect current controversies on the cochlear implant (CI) with their historical background, the audience is invited to join the Deaf and hearing actors on their journey into the past.

The ancillary format FOCUS FUTURE V will be offered for the performance.
