Nothing is Impossible. First in Tel Aviv, then in London, audiences rose to cheer the world’s only professional deaf-blind ensemble’s captivating and magical tour of their inner world. As bread is kneaded, formed and baked on stage, these extraordinary storytellers convey their memories and dreams. Transformative. Moving. Profound. Educational. Unforgettable. These are just a few of the words used to describe this once-in-a-lifetime experience that brings the theatrical and culinary arts together in an unprecedented way around one of the most fascinating human conditions mankind has ever known.
“One of the most remarkable, most humbling and most profoundly affecting theatrical experiences you will ever have.”The Mail On Sunday (UK)
Directed by Nalaga’at’s celebrated Artistic Director Adina Tal, Not by Bread Alone garnered tremendous acclaim in its sold-out UK premiere at the 2010 LIFT Festival, and makes its highly anticipated U.S. premiere in this strictly limited engagement.
