In the News: Theatre brings together Deaf and hearing students
Tim Bray Theatre Company was featured in a Stuff article on 13 May 2023 about its collaboration with Ko Taku Reo Deaf Education to work with secondary school students to create a performance based on Deaf culture.
Here’s a snippet:
“Tim Bray has been a pioneer in providing access to the Deaf community and was the first performing arts company to offer New Zealand Sign Language-interpreted performances in Aotearoa.
“The outcomes for the students last year were positive and huge,” said Bray. “Since 2004, students from Ko Taku Reo have been attending our NZSL-interpreted performances of each of our professional live productions for free.
“Now, it’s their turn to again take to the stage with their own unique showcase, in their own language, with their own stories.””
