Deaf Czech Theatre May 1 and 2 at VCC

Dear Friends, family, adults and kids of the Deaf community,

An exciting and unique event is coming to Vancouver!

I, Moe Nasri have been working for a few years now with a
professional Deaf Theatre company in the Czech Republic, and we are
finally bringing our group to tour in Canada. We will be showing one
children’s performance, and two showings of an adult performance.
Both of the performances are very easily understood by hearing and
Deaf, there’s no need for interpretation.

On May 1st and 2nd, the performances will be taking place at the
Vancouver Community College auditorium, made possible by Vincent
Chauvet and the program of Sign Language and Deaf Studies.

There will even be a great opportunity for socializing after the
adult performance on May 1st, we will hold a social reception party.

Take a look at the website signlanguage@vcc.ca for ticket
information and come out to see something that you wont see very
often! A Deaf Theatre from Europe in your own hometown!

Can’t wait to see you there.


The Neslysim Theatre Company was established in November 1997 and consists of graduates from the Janá?ek Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in Brno, Czech Republic. This completely Deaf-run, theatre aims to directly inspire the Deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals in the Czech Republic, surrounding European countries, and even world-wide. In a bold effort to bridge the gap between Deaf and hearing worlds, Nesylsim Theatre Company creates new opportunities for artists and audiences to enjoy theatre through the mediums of dramatic gesture, Sign Language, physical movement and poetry that are easily understood by Deaf or hearing audiences. Our organization has been well recognized by professional theatres world-wide, Deaf and hearing, with numerous awards for artistic, musical, and technical merit. The Neslysim Theatre draws audiences from all demographics and abilities. As the only Deaf theatre company in the Czech republic, we endeavor to create history.
