Sign Night - Hand Ships Sail

Sign Night – Hand Ships Sail is a poetic conversation in British Sign Language (BSL) – the vital, visual and versatile language of British deaf communities. Two deaf performers share their dreams for the future as they look out over the night sky. Intriguing and sensual, the installation explores communication barriers caused by mask-wearing, and the social isolation which has been experienced by many deaf people during the pandemic.
