•• The Last Leaf ••

28 August 2018

Semiotic Theatre Productions’ “The Last Leaf” is a fully inclusive, interdisciplinary theatre piece based on a short story by O. Henry.

Through the story of two artists, Johnsy and Sue, Semiotic brings British Sign Language into mainstream theatre by incorporating BSL into the movement and communication of the piece.

Semiotic Theatre Productions was created by 7 students in November 2017. This was part of a third-year module within the BA (Hons) Performing Arts course at the University of Cumbria. They have worked closely with the Cumbria Deaf Association and with the support of Victoria Paulo from SolarBear, Glasgow, in order to achieve their practice.

This new show is part of the Festival’s Creative Sparks programme which creates space and time for new works being created from Carlisle.
