The Last Five Years

In November 2018 in the Arts Centre some of us from Curtain Call performed a Sign Supported English (SSE) performance of a medley made from the songs in The Last Five Years.

This was a collaboration with Leeway Productions where they wanted groups from the community to perform a medley from the show and perform the SSE with it. This was a really enjoyable project and heightened my knowledge of accessibility within theatre. The show itself had two deaf dancers signing alongside the singers with a mix of SSE and BSL. In 2018, it made me think more about how theatre could be more accessible, as this performance was accessible as well as beautiful and creative.
