‘Pah!’: to realise; to become suddenly aware; to show someone you understand them; a colloquial sign widely used within the Deaf community.
The inaugural Pah! Deaf Storytelling Night brings together emerging and established d/Deaf storytellers with a variety of communication styles, whose stories will delight and surprise you. Join us for an evening of watching, listening and understanding lived experiences that are far more than just not being able to hear sound. Through personal tales ranging from the hilarious to the heart-wrenching, we’ll celebrate intersectionality, human connection, and the ways our identities shape our lives in both familiar and unfamiliar ways.
Settle in for a night of raw, passionate, accessible and inclusive storytelling and performance.
Presented in partnership with the Wheeler Centre. Supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Grants.
This project has been amplified by Melbourne Fringe and Darebin Arts as part of the Your Space program.
