"HERE TO SEE", a short film developed from a dance performance, which combines sign
language with dance, expanding the experience of body language.
Rolf Kasteleiner: "The challenge was to work with deaf actors and non deaf dancers by using the sign language to create a new form of silent film. The goal was to make a film for a dance performance, where the expression of the body and the sound are becoming more important
than in a normal film by using the sign language. Although the film was originally destined to a dance performance it holds its autonomy."
To prepare this project, the director of the film assisted the deaf choreographer Joel Liennel from the International Visual Theatre in Paris, who has also been working with the dancers in order to learn them how to use sign language for creating dances. This was necessary to get a view of how the communication structure changes by not using the audio sense.
"Here to see" ist ein Kurzfilm der mit Tanz und der Gebärdensprache arbeitet.
