People of the Eye at Arlington Arts, Newbury

Inspired by real events, this personal story follows a family finding their way through unfamiliar territory to discover their own voice. A story about parents, about sisters, and about the complex love that binds families together.

Using a mix of video projections, sound, live performance, and creative accessibility, this unique performance is about memories, feelings of isolation, and finding the joy in difference.

This is a provocative piece that examines the realities of the people affected by deafness, and celebrates the beauty of sign language and Deaf culture while not shying away from the complex idea of culture verses disability.

Accessible to D/deaf, hard of hearing and hearing audiences through the use of BSL, spoken English and creative captions.
