Go beyond language and set yourself free! DIALOGUE IN SILENCE

Let's Talk

In preparation for opening of Dialogue Museum in 2020, Dialogue in Silence is holding the exhibition again this summer.

ABOUTWhat is Dialogue in Silence?


Go beyond language and set yourself free!

Dialogue in Silence is a form of entertainment in which participants enjoy dialogues in total silence while overcoming language and cultural barriers.

Hearing-impaired guides, who are experts in non-verbal communication, lead you through the exhibition. Participants wear noise-cancelling headsets and enter a world of silence to discover the powers of concentration, observation, expression, and also feel a sense of liberation.

Participants learn how to communicate with each other not using sound or voice but by using body language and other means. Regardless of your native language, you can communicate with others more deeply than you can imagine.

Dialogue in Silence was held for the first time in Germany in 1998 and later in France, Israel, Mexico, Turkey, and China. More than one million people in the world have experienced Dialogue in Silence so far.

In Japan, it was held in 2017 for the first time, since then, about 10000 visitors experienced the exhibition.

10days exhibition will have a silent impact on Japan.
