Deaf Men Dancing, a company consisting of all-male professional deaf dancers, will perform a production titled Embrace on November 6 at the Dubai Opera promenade.
The 6pm, hour-long show will be open to the public and free to attend.
The dance troupe’s visit is part of the UK and UAE’s Year of Creative Collaboration.
Embrace will tell the story of two strangers who meet for the first time and discover that sign language and tango are the only way to communicate, and thus embrace each other.
Mark Smith, creator of Deaf Men Dancing, and Ray Batchelor, a tango instructor for D/deaf CAN Dance!, collaborated on the production.
