27 degrees is presenting a scratch performance of our new, inclusive immersive theatre show on Wednesday 22nd May at 7pm at the Migration Museum.
Touching Home is inspired by the everyday stories of London migrants. Walking away from the dramatic narratives shared by the media, we want to explore the intimacy of the experience of leaving one’s country. But in this multi-sensory performance, we want audiences to feel it, to touch it, to smell it, to taste it.
You will visit different spaces that were part of the most important moments of these migrants who decided to make London their home: their first bedroom, a kitchen, a classroom, immigration offices. During the performance you will experience multi-sensory installations, storytelling, puppetry, dance and multimedia. In this performance, we will be experimenting with different ways of improving accessibility of immersive theatre, such as creative captioning, audio descriptions and touch tours (see more information below).
27 degrees is a multicultural collective of artists specialised in socially-engaged theatre in unusual spaces.
You can find more details and images of the show, as well as more info about our company on www.27degrees.org/touchinghome
Accessibility of the performance:
Our company endeavours to build accessibility into everything we do.
This is the first time we will use creative captioning for D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences and integrate audio description for visually impaired audiences into the show.
This will be a relaxed event, audiences are welcome to make noise and move around, follow the journey to each room or choose not to at any time.
The Museum is located on the first floor at the old London Fire Brigade building and there is no level access.
A Touch Tour inside the exhibition will take place prior to the performance, at 6pm. This is open to visually impaired audiences or anyone who wishes to familiarise themselves with the set beforehand. This is free, but places are limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible.
The performance is sold out but we offer a limited number of free tickets for people with visual or hearing impairments. Please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to come along to the performance and/or the Touch Tour. You can contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07857046446.
