Surface Area Dance Theatre: An introduction to British Sign Language

Surface Area Dance Theatre: An introduction to British Sign Language, delivered by native Sign Language user Paul Miller and Communication Support Worker Nicole Vivien Watson.

Facilitated as an informal workshop activity in conjunction with the company's performances of Auricular. Paul and Nicole will offer participants an introduction to British Sign Language and an insight into the making of Auricular.

Dance City and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art firstly commissioned Auricular in 2014 and in 2015. Now with support from Arts Council England and partnering organisations Auricular will be presented in April 2017 at CCA Glasgow, Berwick Visual Arts and at Turner Contemporary.
 
Directed by Nicole Vivien Watson in collaboration with the artists involved, Nicole comments “British Sign Language is a language of movement, space and expression. As a movement researcher and choreographer, I am fascinated by the depth and clarity of a language that does not rely on the spoken word”.
