Founded in 2007 by the world’s one and only deaf-blind theater troupe, Na Laga’at (meaning ‘please touch’) is a center of interaction and dialogue, meant to bridge the divide between the disabled and the wider community. The goal is to shed light onto the world of the actors, as well as open a true channel of communication between individuals often too embarrassed to ask and explore.
In riding a wave of global success as a touring theatre company, Na Laga’at found a home in a deserted warehouse by the Jaffa port. Since opening its doors, the center hosted over 200,000 visitors from both Israel and abroad.
In addition to the awe-inspiring performances of the theatre group, the complex consists of Café Kapish and Black Out restaurant. The café is completely staffed by a deaf wait-staff. True to its name, the restaurant offers the experience of eating while stripped of any sense of sight, all the while being hosted and waited on by a blind wait staff. Visiting the center and taking part in the play is a truly unique experience not to be missed during your visit to Tel Aviv.
