Chyna

Chyna is 14. She’s a dancer. She touches sound.

She is a Deaf performer. Come and meet her as she tells her story.

In this multimedia dance production, mixing a video documentary with a live solo performance, she takes us on a journey through her daily life, immersing us in her world as she uses all her senses. Deafness is not a disability here but the opportunity to experience the world differently. Resonating in all of us, this show is accessible to both hearing and non-hearing audiences, without the use of translation.

Created in collaboration with Oak Lodge, a specialist school for the D/deaf in Balham and Deaf Dance Artist Chisato Minamimura, this performance aims at bridging the D/deaf and hearing communities.

We welcome audience feedback following the performance.

About Weave Stories

Weave Stories aim at empowering local residents within London by creating performances based on their participants. Musician/composer and Director Laurence Dollander has previously presented work at Battersea Arts Centre and the Avignon OFF festival. Her work experiments with the documentary medium, challenging the role given to the performer by exploring a social form of theatre where performers and audiences identify with one another.
