Hearing loss and found identities – the sound of silence

19 November, 2017, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join this performance and workshop, aimed at those who have experienced sensory changes, such as hearing or sight impairment. The performance will present extracts of work including: The Unheard, an immersive theatre piece by Nessa Haynes in collaboration with Sonic Artist John D’Arcy about her experience of hearing loss; and dance performance Inside the Speaker by Helen Hall, a partially sighted choreographer and dancer exploring what we see and what we sense when watching dance, what dance is and what it means to dance.

The practical workshop will be facilitated by dramaturg Hanna Slattne; it will look at how we explore artistically, through interdisciplinary collaboration, the subtle and personal experiences of change in how we perceive our world.

This event is part of the series Belfast celebrates the humanities.
