Collaboration with deaf community
Silent Sound is an innovative dance-theater initiativewhich indents to connect the worlds of hearing and not hearingwith each others, both on stage and in the audience.
The projects of Silent Sound are an artistic quest for what unites deaf / hard of hearing and hearing and what separates them, but especially where their paths intersect.
Silent Sound searching for an interface with dance, theater and music, that can link simultaneously with deaf / hard of hearing and hearing audiences (although they undoubtedly experienced things differently). Silent Sound wants to create space for meeting between the two worlds of experience, which touch and enrich each other.

In dance performance (TE) STIL we connect the world of deaf, hearing-impaired and hearing people.(TE) STIL is a crossover between dance, sign language and photography, danced by a deaf and a hearing dancer, made for deaf, hard of hearing and hearing audiences.
With (Te) STIL we approach the audience in various ways ; dance is not only visible, but also readable, music is not only audible, but also tangible (kan man das so sagen?) and photography the visual meeting point between all audience groups.
With (TE) STIL we investigate the theme silence and ask ourselves; what does silence mean and what does sound mean to a person?
(TE)STIL is created in collaboration with the dancers Pawel Moleda & Johnny Lloyd, sign-language translator Rianne Havekes and visual artist Paul van Rijswijk. Supported with founding of Makersfonds Tilburg and Prins Bernard Cultuurfonds Noord-Brabant Netherlands).
