Anyway, we just call it Tyst Teater – so said Åke Augustsson at ABF when the free group Tyst Teater was formed in 1970.
But this theater group has not been particularly quiet. May it be that the stage language is sign language. That employees and artists are deaf.
This anniversary book tells about the fifty years that have passed since the start. It tells about how the group has still managed to be heard properly. And above all, visible. Because it is the visuals in sign language and deaf culture that have taken place on stage. It is a story about the first fifty years of pioneering performing arts in sign language. About performing arts that knock down walls, break prejudices and have been and still are ahead of their time in many ways.
Join a reading journey through half a century about with and by deaf people, sign language and deaf culture. In addition, with many beautiful and unique photographs from all performances over the years.
Do not miss this book with historical value!
