The Deaf and Hearing Ensemble presents
People Of The Eye
By Erin Siobhan Hutching
“Of course, you shouldn’t use ‘sign language’.”
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 an unplugged Edinburgh Fringe Festival preview performance. People of the Eye will be part of Northern Stage’s program at Summerhall, Edinburgh in August.
‘An arresting, immersive and startlingly original piece of theatre. A beautiful, tightly choreographed spectacle…something very special indeed.’ A Younger Theatre
‘The love between the two characters is palpable and you leave the piece warmed by it while questioning why society is so fussed about difference.’ Huffington Post
Please note this venue is not wheelchair accessible. If you have any access requirements please inquire at the box office.
