The heart of DEAFinitely is the Performance Crew.
It consists of Deaf and hearing crew members ages 7-14 years old from
every neighborhood of Boston and surrounding towns.
Youth learn to communicate and work as a team, move in and out of Deaf and hearing worlds, racially and socially diverse communities, and their comfort zones. The connections they form transcend through the performing arts and their collective impact resonates with
audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
This diverse crew introduces communities to the concept of ‘Deaf gain’ versus hearing loss.
By embracing deafness not as a disability but as a benefit to human diversity, the
Performance Crew mobilizes communities to bridge cultures, languages and differences.
