Audience/Participants will be surrounded by 8 silent speakers who will be using sign language, talking about issues and solutions for our planet.
THE PERFORMERS: 8 participants who are “deaf or deaf” or are able to communicate with sign language.
THE AUDIENCE: will be immersed in a place where there is no oral communication but only sign language.
I have chosen to work with “deaf or deaf” and BSL users with the topic of “Solutions for our planets” to highlight the fact that solutions exist but are often ignored or not heard. I call the space in between the performers/communicators: the “Talking Field”, which is where talk and issues can’t be heard but are indeed tangible.
