An intergenerational story about love, loss and language, told with physical storytelling, live instrumental music, New Zealand Sign Language, and spoken English. This piece is performed by a Deaf and hearing cast and designed to be accessible for d/Deaf and hearing audiences.

A spirited story about a father and daughter who do not share the same language.

Rose’s life only stretches to the four walls of her home. While Rose yearns for her mother, her loving father wants to protect her from the ‘dangers’ of the outside world. Rose just wants to see it for herself. To escape a world where she doesn’t belong, Rose creates a whole new world, where lines of the imagined and the real soon start to blur…

The collision of two worlds, and the pursuit of meeting in the space between.

An intergenerational story about love, loss and language, told with physical storytelling, live instrumental music, New Zealand Sign Language, and spoken English. This piece is performed by a Deaf and hearing cast and designed to be accessible for d/Deaf and hearing audiences.

The development of this piece has been made possible by funding from the NZSL Board, and the Aotearoa New Zealand tour has been possible thanks to funding from Creative New Zealand. We thank both funding bodies for their support.

Where Our Shadows Meet premiered at the Playhouse Theatre, Kirikiriroa Hamilton, Aotearoa New Zealand in January 2021, and tours to Wellington, Wairarapa and Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival in February 2022.

Working with an international Deaf and hearing team, we have turned to zoom to rehearse through lockdowns in Aotearoa New Zealand and in the UK throughout this project.
