Short Synopsis: Deaf-born enter a lonely bubble, excluded from a world that expects them to adapt to the speaking world. Now imagine a society where body language is the main communication tool. In this film we create an extraordinary subculture that connect through the vibrations, macro impulses and density of the environment. We all have a heartbeat, that can be translated to a musical beat.
For a dancer, the body is a tool to express oneself. For the deaf, the body is a tool to be seen, 'heard', and understood. Through hiphop we hope to bridge the gap between the deaf and the hearing world.

Notes for Judging: Transferring this message through hiphop seemed to be the ultimate way to connect with the world. Young rapper Equivocal wrote lyrics that conveyed part of the message. His words are translated into sign language by deaf people and translators. Together with these people and a hearing choreographer Lucinda Wessels, the signs are carefully integrated into a choreography. We make this language understandable for the hearing and the deaf
