Bali: Deaf Dance Group

An important part of local culture in Bali is the artistic expression through dance. Joel meets
Wayan Suatra, who founded a Deaf dance group, and visits with the group to see how they
prepare their costumes for dance. Joel then takes in a terrific performance by the Bali dance
group, which literally includes some fiery performances!
Thanks to ZVRS for making our Around The World 3 trip possible with their sponsorship.

    I liked the part of flamethrower and interpreter, when the interpreter asked how the flamethrower feel about how he feels about hearing watching them and he responded with sign of feck them, as when you put your hand under your chin then move your hand out of your chin forward. I hope u gets it. What a proudly deaf guy!
