About the project
The Kol Demama (Sound-Silence) is a unique dance troupe consisting of deaf and hearing dancers. The company was created in 1978 by Moshe Efrati, a former dancer and choreographer with the Batsheva Dance Company and student of Martha Graham. Efrati has developed unique devices for coordinating the movements of the deaf dancers, including floor vibrations, taps on the shoulders and facial expressions that he builds into the choreography. The troupe performs throughout Israel and abroad.
