Writer, Samantha Sutherland, and actor & BSL Singer Jennifer Wilson, from Door Ajar Theatre will run this introductory workshop on using BSL in a creative context.

Drawing on their recent experiences creating Thisbe, an actor-musician production featuring integrated BSL throughout, Sam and Jenny will share exercise and techniques that will show how to use BSL creatively and as a storytelling device.

BSL is a language that brings a visual dimension to theatre.  Even if you have no knowledge of BSL, this workshop will make us think differently about how we can utilise more than one language in theatre.

There are over 150 languages spoken in Newham schools; where better to explore this gift?
