Sunday, December 11 | 6:00pm
Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art
Information and Tickets

Israeli deaf and hearing dance duo from Israel will perform, Two Worlds, where the world of silence and the world of sound are creatively meshed into a moving dance performance. Jill and Amnon Damti use pantomime, sign language and fluid movement to engage the audience in an interactive format—a dance narrative that challenges any preconceived notion of human limitations.  

Bring kids of all ages to enjoy an Art Workshop with a MOCA Art instructor during the performance. Reservations for the workshop required by December 7.
