Our experience in collaborating with the deaf community has proven to us that it represents a culture in itself, insufficiently known and valued. The performance is aimed both to the deaf and to those who can hear, considered members of the same inclusive community: the theater audience, art enthusiasts.
The Frosty Sun (Soare cu dinți) play explores the Deaf culture and, above all, the gateways shared with the culture of the hearing community through the use of humor. Comic situations from the everyday life of the deaf and their interactions with hearers, the advantages of being deaf in an ever louder world, the nonverbal communication channels are explored in a project animated by the lack of prejudices and by the humor that has always fueled the collaboration with our deaf friends.
