D-Live!'s productions are Deaf-led, ground-breaking and dynamic, combining varied theatre genres. Our work is one of a kind, integrating the physical expression of Visual Vernacular and digital technology. This results in a distinctive, unique and predominantly visual piece of theatre.
D-Live! aims to widen the range of the Deaf theatregoer's experience, creating shows with a pioneering combination of Visual Vernacular, digital mapping and cabaret. We strive to explore different boundaries of theatre work, from new plays to contemporary classics to cabaret. We design our productions for Deaf people, yet ensure they remain accessible to both Deaf and mainstream audiences.
D-Live! helps to preserve and promote Deaf heritage, culture and identity. Our projects and workshops educate and entertain the Deaf community, participating in regional clubs, centres and theatres. We will ensure our work is universally accessible using other forms of expression via virtual communities and networks. D-Live! will empower future generation of Deaf artists, with our opportunities to celebrate Deaf culture.
