Speaking Vibrations is a multidisciplinary devised performance made by four artists with an extensive range of skills and artistries. One thing that strikes me so distinctly about this piece is its generosity. The pace allows us to wade in slowly. The production functions like poetry rather than narrative; each line, each gesture, illuminating an idea and building to something greater. There is a show happening for a Deaf audience and there is a show happening for a hearing audience and they are the same show. This integration is unusual. It is a vision of a more equitable, beautiful and interrelated world. May this vision and interrelatedness inspire us all.”
