Loss, the precursor to 'Motherland', was another short project to aimed at developing one of the influential events which shaped Deaf history and culture.
The chosen theme was the treatment of Deaf people at the hands of the Nazis.
'Loss' was born and evolved in a three week long creation / rehearsal process. It focuses on the experiences of a deaf woman sterilised as a teenager - her attempts to come to terms with the experience and the impact on her future life.
Like our first ever project, 'Deaf History', we incorporated various forms of visual storytelling, sign and speech into the production - highlighting Deafinitely Theatre's unique style of drama.
First performed at Oval House Theatre, September 2002.
