"It's a little weird attending a theatre performance created and intended for a deaf audience, and then walking out of the theater and think that this show should be shown to all students in high school throughout Norway. That’s how good this performance is. And so effective is the way this sign language theater communicates both history, knowledge and not to mention emotions.

Crying Hands is a complete performance, strong, moving, important and almost completely unparalleled in Norwegian theater. I do not hesitate to say: It should be mandatory for all students in high school. We do neither have the time or can afford not to."

The fates of the deaf in Nazi Germany has been a neglected topic in the story of the Holocaust. It is only recently that this almost unknown chapter of history has been the subject of documentation and research. – Director Bentein Baardson

Crying Hands is a documentary driven play about deaf and disabled people's experience during WWII. It is based on interviews of Holocaust and civilian survivors.

This is an original production by Teater Manu, an award-winning National Deaf Theater based in Oslo and has toured extensively across Norway and abroad.

With four of Norway's most dynamic actors; this production is performed in both ASL and English.
