In Touch

An Inclusion Theatre Company and Theatre of Nations co-production

Sat 14 October, 5pm & 8pm
Running Time: Approximately 1hr 15mins with no interval

In Touch

Told through an eclectic style of spoken, signed and physical theatre, In Touch captures the real stories of deafblind, blind, visually impaired, D/deaf, hard-of-hearing, sighted and hearing people. This show explores the emotional rollercoaster of being human, how we each navigate our lives and what happens when different worlds collide and unite.

In Touch is part of a long-term project with Inclusion Theatre and Theatre of Nations, using the arts to connect deafblind, sighted and hearing people in different spaces. The original production, Touch-Ables, based on the real stories of the actors and their interactions with the world, had its premiere in Russia in 2015.

This production is an international version performed by actors from Russia and the UK. The performance will be BSL interpreted, captioned and audio described. 

All tickets £15
