Art with heart
Rehearsals are well underway for Art with Heart’s new children’s show Stan, which explores communication, friendship, identity, the family unit… and dinosaurs!
IOU’s producer Jonathan McGrath has been working closely with their creative team and together they have taken Deaf Awareness training with Deaf Manchester to create a set that is captioned, animated with actors moving between BSL, spoken text and choreography.
This exciting show starts its tour on 10th Feb in Manchester- to find out more about this amazing work, visit their website: Art with heart: Stan
