Exeter Northcott Theatre runs accessible shows that are BSL interpreted, captioned and audio described
We are very pleased to see that Exeter Northcott Theatre are running more accessible performances and their latest is ‘Human’ from theatre company Extraordinary Bodies.
Human tells stories of togetherness through a combination of circus performance, live original music, dance and film footage. All performances will be BSL interpreted, captioned and audio described.
Information from Exeter Northcott Theatre about the performance.
Part circus, part serenade, part cinema, Human is about the small moments that shape us. On a stage set with a trapeze, circus rope and set of drums, four performers start to tell stories from their lives, from their childhoods, and from the last 24 months. They talk about uncertainty, about times of big decisions and about getting through things together. The character of ‘Circus’ interrupts them: Graziella has fallen on hard times.
Her poetry weaves through the show, becoming part of the storytelling, and her bravery speaks to us all.
Human features live original music, soulful drumming, rope and trapeze performance. Dance and film footage (with integrated BSL interpretation and captioning) is drawn from the performers’ actual lives. The live and recorded sounds are played through silent disco headphones, creating an intimate relationship between performers and audience.
All performances are relaxed, BSL interpreted, captioned and audio described. A promo code is also available, use promo code HUMAN for a £5 ticket offerMore details and booking
