Communicate in silence! Workshop making “Words of the Hands” with Eno, actor from Deaf Puppet Theater Hitomi
*Total 4 sessions *Conducted in Japanese
Communicate in silence!
A workshop welcoming deaf actor Eno (ENOMOTO Toru) and musician Keibo (YANASE Keiko), who have long been active with the puppet troupe Deaf Puppet Theater Hitomi, as lecturer and facilitator. Try expressing yourself without using your voice, but using your hands and fingers that give the features of expression in sign language, and movements of your face and body. After a warm-up in “Words of the Hands,” we will view the artworks displayed in the exhibition “Dear Stories: Tales and Talks” being held in the gallery, and attempt to communicate silently what we imagined.

Eno (ENOMOTO Toru)/ Actor Deaf Puppet Theater Hitomi
Founded in 1980, deaf people and those who can hear work together in this specialist puppet troupe of a kind rarely seen in the world. Focusing on the “visual” appeal that puppet theater has, it evokes the sensibilities of deaf people, and works toward creating new expression rich in visuality. Alongside stage performances, it is also involved in workshop activities in which anyone can take part regardless of disability or age.
