It’s Perfect to be Imperfect

Adina TalFilmed at Limmud Conference 2015

This talk recounts the story of how I came to found the world-renowned Nalaga'at ('Please Touch') Theater Company after accepting an invitation to teach drama to a group of deaf-blind individuals. It changed not only the course of my life but also the lives of the deaf-blind; and it was a transformative experience for the hundreds of thousands in Israel and abroad who saw their performances. It also recounts the story of slowly understanding that only imperfect people can change the world -understanding that the saying "nobody is perfect" is an important truth as we are all imperfect. My conclusion being: "it's perfect to be imperfect."

Adina Tal was born and raised in Switzerland, and immigrated to Israel at the age of 20. She worked as an actress, playwright and theater director.
She co-founded with Eran Gur the world-renowned Nalaga’at (please touch) Theater Company in 2002 after accepting an invitation to teach drama to a group of deaf-blind individuals, an experience that changed her life, and the lives of hundreds of thousands in Israel and worldwide.
After 15 years of being the Company’s artistic director and President Adina decided to move forward, lectures in Israel and abroad, she develops a new model for a cultural social enterprise.
