Say, What? - Story of a world without language - A Review
Say, What? a production by choreographer Avantika Bahl was staged in Mumbai recently. Around 60 people, both Deaf and Hearing, attended the show.
The show was 55 minutes long and was very impressive. The two artistes were Vishal Sarvaiya, who is hearing impaired, and Avantika Bahl used their body language and communication in a unique dance and sign language concept.
Hearing members in the audience said that they got goose bumps during the show.
The concept of the dance is very different. Deaf and hearing people present in the event had different views about the dance performance.
The story conveyed through the dance performance was very good.

About the event:
The event was a new concept of dance by Avantika Bahl and Vishal Sarvaiya, who is a part of the Shiamak Davar dance company.
The dance included sign language merged with bodily movements. The aim of the dance sequence was to show how deaf people feel.
The dance was performed in silence as a tribute to life of people with hearing impairments.
