People of the Eye: Work in Progress Showing: Forest Fringe 2015

We are so excited to be performing as part of Forest Fringe's BSL access day. A day we help produce with Forest Fringe and Solar Bear Theatre Company. The full program has now been announced and can be seen here

What is it?

A show about Deafness.
A show about family.

A beautiful mix of British Sign Language, spoken English, sign mime, movement, music, soundscapes and projection, People Of The Eye tells the story of two sisters, one Deaf and one Hearing.

The Deaf & Hearing Ensemble formed in 2013 as a group of D/deaf and hearing theatre makers who come together to tell each other stories, to explore the performative nature and beauty of sign language and to pull together D/deaf and hearing audiences in a shared experience – breaking down barriers on stage and off.

This is a work in progress performance, and feedback will be invited afterwards.
