In Gebärdensprache - In sign language

Four deaf performers have joined forces to collectively work on their first piece: A musical!

The fact that deaf people have no connection to music is a prejudice. With game-rules, rhythm box and signed lyrics they expand the boundaries of this genre. Accessibility for hearing viewers is achieved by a variety of means. This includes the creative handling of surtitles and autotranslation, but also "visual vernacular", a poetic art form of sign language that is intuitively accessible via moving images.

Steve Stymest, born in Nuremberg in 1991, is an art director, model, photographer and runway coach. He is founder and head photographer of Next Deaf Model. His native language is German Sign Language. He currently lives and works in Berlin.

JAN KRESS, born in Offenbach, was 14 when he first stood on stage as an actor. In 2014 he became well known for the performance bodieSLANGuage by TheProgressiv Wave. At the theatre festival Clin d'oeil, he was awarded the prize "Best International Actor" for the short film Jenseits von Worten by Oscar Lauterbach in 2015. He lives in Berlin since 2008.

RITA MAZZA, born and grown up in Turin, worked in Italy, London and Berlin as an actress and performer. She played the protagonist role of Sarah in God's Forgotten Children at the Theater Artisti Associati Company in Italy. Rita Mazza is also artistic director of the International Festival del Silenzio. She speaks Italian, German, French and International Sign Language. She lives in Berlin since 2010.

ATHINA LANGE, born in Plauen in 1991, completed her acting studies at the Schauspielschule Leipzig, which she graduated from in 2015 with a stage-status examination. During and after her studies she had various theatre and film engagements with the Leipzig Ensemble, Theaterfabrik Sachsen, Filmstudio Babelsberg and Possible World e.V. Berlin. From November 2019 she can be seen with the piece Die Wut die uns vereint under the direction of Wera Mahne at the Staatstheater Hannover. She currently lives in Berlin.
