‘We are warriors. We are survivors. If you need our help, let us know.’
Four women come together to perform a ritual of community and catharsis.
Gathering up true stories of deaf women’s experiences of surviving abuse, they form a witches’ coven like no other – with a cauldron of newt’s eyes and butterflies, deep scars and blazing signs.
A visually-rich, playful and pulsatingly urgent world premiere from multi-award-winners Deafinitely Theatre (4.48 Psychosis, Contractions), combining BSL and English in the company’s unique bilingual style.
Drawing on interviews with women exploring domestic abuse in the deaf community, this is a defiant and empowering new work from nationally-acclaimed director Paula Garfield, marking the company’s 20th anniversary.
