Signs

  • The Old Fire Station 40 George Street Oxford, England, OX1 2AQ United Kingdom

A contemporary dance piece fusing contemporary dance with British Sign Language.

Performed by two female dancers, this exciting and intricate duet takes inspiration from Colin Thompson's poem 'If I told you I was deaf would you turn away'.

Accompanied by an originally composed music score, this highly physical performance explores the importance of body language in British Sign Language, and the barriers of a deaf person trying to communicate in a hearing world.

Ages 8+. 30 minutes. In the OFS Theatre. £10.
