Kitchen’s Light performers

Sam, Marie and Boaz all three were born and raised in Amsterdam. Marie is a graphic designer, Boaz is a communication advisor at Gelderhorst in Ede and Sam is office manager at Tallking Results. Starting 3 years ago as a group of 6 people with no name, in the end after brainstorming together they came up with Kitchen’s Light. The special thing about this group is that they are all deaf and communicate in sign language.
