About the event
Venue: Roxburgh Theatre
Helen, Alan, and Graham are told they are impaired and need fixing. Connecting through a shared past they are transported to one pivotal moment in 1880 when a dangerous ideology was born: one that would impair the way the world views Deaf people for over a century. Ad Infinitum combine the company’s signature style of physical storytelling with the beauty of British Sign Language in an unmissable feast for the senses. Extraordinary Wall of Silence is a bilingual performance in BSL and English.
Running time: 1 hour 20 mins no interval
Age rating: 14+
