I exist when your hands create me

This video dance is part of an exploration of sing language and dance in the context of vindicating the linguistic and cultural rights of the deaf community as part of inclusion processes. One deaf dancer meets a hearing one and therefore gestures, hands and touch become the main tools not only for communication but furthermore, to recognize the other, to create each other. The use of animation helps to underline this idea and to focus on the beauty and poetics of touch, a sense that people with sensorial impairments know so well.
