Extraordinary Wall [Of Silence]

Date: Saturday, Oct 5 - Saturday, Oct 19
Venue: Bristol Old Vic: Weston Studio

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.

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.

Extraordinary Wall [of Silence] is a bilingual performance in English and BSL with integrated captioning.

Co-commissioned by Birmingham Hippodrome, Bristol Old Vic, HOME, Newbury Corn Exchange, In Good Company, in association with Salisbury Playhouse and supported by The North Wall.

Made possible through funding from Arts Council England and Bristol City Council.
