A theatrical performance based on a “collaboration of dance, counseling and sign language” designed for both hearing and deaf people to enjoy. By featuring deaf people on stage with professional dancers, the aim is to bring the joys of dance to a wider audience and remove the barriers between hearing and deaf people.
A performance in two parts, Part 1 is styled like a musical and features signing for dialogue and on-screen subtitles to make the performance accessible for deaf people. The show features ten professional dancers and deaf performers. Eight performers dance with the deaf performer who has been dancing for 15 years. Part 2 comprises dance numbers by a total of 54 people (9 of them deaf) in 13 groups.


My hand My life
The meaning of the group’s name implies that “when the hands dance, the life dances.” The group’s activities involve hearing people and deaf people, adults and children working towards the same goal without discrimination on a variety of events and stage performances.
My hand My life holds dance lessons at a studio in Takadanobaba in Shinjuku on a daily basis, and performances once a year.
