Sarah Smith: Hear No Evil image

One of three major performances looking at today’s Scotland. Using a fusion of sign language, image and performance, Hear No Evil tells the story of Jean Campbell, a Deaf woman who in 1817 in Glasgow was accused of murder when her child drowned in the Clyde. It was a turning point in rights for Deaf people in Scotland.
Today’s performance was created in partnership with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s BA course in Performance in British Sign Language and English.
Supported through the Scottish Government’s Festivals Expo Fund and by Sir Ewan and Lady Brown.
