Two Worlds tells the story of the convergence of the deaf and hearing worlds, through Jill and Amnon Damti, two amazing dancers and artists. Amnon Damti is considered one of the leading DEAF DANCERS in the world today as well as a gifted choreographer. Jill Damti, Amnon’s wife incorporates not just dance into their performance, but helps the audience experience and embrace points of inflection between the deaf and hearing worlds through narrative as well as interaction.
