The Lifetime of Deaf & Deafblind - Joondalup Festival 2024

The Lifetime of Deaf & Deafblind 

Ever wondered what it might be like to experience a lifetime of isolation? No communication, forced to learn in a language you can’t experience… welcome to The Lifetime of Deaf and Deafblind.

Peter Blockey and Eddie Szczepanik from Deafinite Connection invite you into their world with this interactive signed storytelling and song performance. With the help of three hearing cast members, they share the highs and lows of growing up in a hearing world – from Deaf education in the 70s, tales of heartbreak, and celebrations of new technologies.

This heartfelt story will drag you through a range of emotions and expose you to an unfamiliar and challenging, yet beautiful at times, cultural experience. You will step outside the theatre with a greater understanding of the Deaf and Deafblind community and culture, and a hunger to continue your Auslan journey.

Date: Friday 15 March

Time: 8.00pm (doors open at 7.00pm)
