Presented by Steven Vevers-Webb and D-Live! Theatre Company
Deaf Awakenings is a brand new theatrical production that explores a series of monologues/dialogues/short scenes of Deaf world perspective in language, Deaf image, discrimination and cultural appropriation.
This play aims to educate the public about the recurring daily discrimination, system expulsion, ignorance and cultural misappropriation that Deaf people experience in the dominant culture. It will also raise awareness of the beauty of Deaf culture and invite audiences to try appreciate the Deaf community more.
This play has been written through interviews with all ages and genders about their views and experiences as Deaf people on a wide variety of issues/experiences through their childhood years, family life, workplace, finding their identity and Sign Language.
