Every word counts

Extraordinary Wall of Silence

Synopsis

Helen, Alan and Graham are told they are impaired and need fixing.

As they begin to question the world around them, three powerful coming-of-age stories unfold, uniting in a struggle against violence, ignorance and oppression. Connected through a shared past, they are transported to one pivotal moment in 1880 when a dangerous ideology was born: one that would impair the way the world views D/deaf people for over a century.

Extraordinary Wall of Silence is a bilingual performance in English and BSL where Ad Infinitum combine the company’s signature style of physical storytelling with the beauty of British Sign Language in an unmissable feast for the senses.
