Gal in the Studio

Photographer's Name: 
Stephanie Ballantine

Gal is an Israeli-born choreographer living in Berlin. He is also gay and has with roots in Egypt and Romania. He uses international sign language and deaf dancers in his choreography. He deals with the notion of prejudice, silence, powerlessness, and using expression as a stance. Sign language is not only about communication, but also accentuation of the face, the body; the way he embodies sign, symbol and stature are inspiring and enlightening.
