Seeing Voices

Synopsis

The protagonists of SEEING VOICES may not be able to hear, but that definitely does not leave them without words. Sign language represents a parallel universe full of magic and expressive power which remains unexplored country for the vast majority of people. Ayse, Helene and the non-hearing members of the Hager family don’t lament their inability to hear music or birds singing: after all, these are sounds they have never experienced. But they are denied the right to their mother tongue. They employ different techniques to master their lives, walking the line between the hearing of the world – and refusing to be silent.

World Premiere: DOK Leipzig 2016 - Next Masters Competition
