New theatre literature book
“Deaf Awakening” is a brand new written theatrical production which explores the world through a Deaf perspective. This book also gives you the opportunity to scan QR codes within it and watch six British Sign Language videos featuring two deaf performers - Will Lewis and Alex Nowak.The videos have been created by a predominantly deaf production team, writer and director Steven Vevers-Webb and video editor Andrew Revell. The book was designed by a deaf Creative designer - Chrissan Moldrich.
Steven Vevers-Webb, the writer and director of “Deaf Awakening” said (in British Sign Language translated by an interpreter) – “ I am delighted that the book and videos are being released. This project has been ongoing for the last 2 years and changed slightly due to the CV-19 pandemic. I am so excited for audiences to read and see some of these stories in action.
The Deaf Awakening book will be available on general sale from 18th March 2021 (the anniversary of BSL recognition by the UK Government – 18th March 2003).
