A show about D/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, and their family.
The Deaf & Hearing Ensemble formed in 2013 – 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 the sharing of our work in progress performance of a script by writer/performer Erin Siobhan Hutching, who grew up part of the Deaf community in New Zealand as her older sister is profoundly deaf.
Feedback will be invited after the event, along with time to network and socialise in the bar.
