"Dialogue in Sign Language" held in Tokyo

August 7, 2017

The "Dialogue in Sign Language", by which a participant undergoes vicarious experience of the world without sound and words and enjoys communication, is held at Shibuya-ku, Tokyo until August 20. In Japan, it is the first holding.

Participants use the headset from which sound is insulated. They are led by a Deaf guide and carry on a dialogue only through facial expression and body language.

Seven rooms are in a meeting place, such as "Hand Dance", "Facial Gallery," "Shapes and Hands" (photo) and others, which a participant experience differently. 

This kind of event started in Germany in 1998, and more than 1,000,000 people in six countries experienced it.
