Genre: Event with live subtitles
In 1997, Bella Bathurst began to lose her hearing, and for 12 years deafness shaped her life. Then, in 2009, everything changed again. She talks about her extraordinary experience and what it taught her about listening and silence, music and noise. Investigating the science of deafness, she argues that if sight gives us the world, hearing gives us each other – and our relationship with sound is far more complex than we might expect.
This event has live subtitles by Stagetext.
