A sign interpreted performance of the award-winning show Sorry For Your Loss will be held as part of the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival. The NZSL interpreter will share the stage with writer and performer Cian Parker to ensure great visibility and access for Deaf audiences.
This work explores a story of growing up with a sometimes-there-mostly-not Dad, and an-always-there-doing-her-best Mum. This story is about the strength of a woman, and the gift of strength from one woman to another. Cian has teamed up with theatre director and dramaturg Laura Haughey, and live music by Andrew Duggan will accompany the performance.
The creative team for this interpreted version of the show are Deaf and hearing. Rachel Turner (first language NZSL) is the Director of Interpretation, working alongside the director of the original version, Laura Haughey, to make this piece fully accessible for Deaf audiences. Interpretation and original translation is by Melissa Sutton.
