Deaf performers share stories of the days of Deaf Clubs in the 80s-90s when Deafs chatted under streetlights at the end of a Deaf Club night. These regular weekly to monthly events were ripped away from the Deaf community by audists who believed Deaf people should assimilate into the hearing world and neglect their Deaf Culture. When Deaf Clubs were forcefully removed, Deaf people vowed to retain their Deaf Culture. This performance gives audiences an experience of a Deaf Club through the lens of performance.
This project is amplified by Melbourne Fringe as part of the Cash For Creatives Program.
