People of the Eye (work in progress)
A play about D/deafness and family. Based on Erin Siobhan Hutching's experience growing up, People of the Eye tells the story of two sisters, one Deaf and one Hearing and their family. This is a provocative piece that examines the realities of the people affected directly and indirectly by deafness and celebrates the beauty of sign language and Deaf culture while not shying away from the complex idea of culture verses disability. This is a story about love, memories and communication.
The Deaf and Hearing Ensemble mix British Sign Language, Spoken English, sign mime, movement, music, soundscapes, audience interaction and video projection to create this production that is accessible to Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing audiences. Three female artists whose identities have been shaped by their association with and membership of their respective Deaf communities lead the project.
