Graeae is a force for change in world-class theatre – breaking down barriers, challenging preconceptions and boldly placing Deaf and disabled artists centre stage.
Artistically led by Jenny Sealey, Graeae’s signature characteristic is the compelling creative integration of sign language, captioning and audio description, which engages brilliantly with both disabled and non-disabled audiences.
Championing accessibility and providing a platform for new generations of artists, Graeae leads the way in pioneering, trail-blazing theatre, both in the UK and internationally.
Graeae also run an extensive programme of training and learning opportunities throughout the year, training and developing the next generation of Deaf and disabled artists. These programmes include Write to Play for early-career writers, and Ensemble, which trains young Deaf and disabled artists in theatre making skills. Graeae are lucky enough to have a cohort of young artistic advisors, also known as The Rollettes, who come together to perform once a year.
