"Hypnotic, poetic and unruly. Signdance Collective represents the ungovernable energy of art itself, railing and raging against tyrannical forces. Beautiful to behold"

In Between Spaces/Projekt Z

In-Between Spaces is a work in progress and has had a research and development grant from the Arts Council of England.
The story follows a journey of two souls perambulating in a world outside of time. Are they the first humans on Earth? Are they the last? Are they even human or just echoes of a digital mind? Among hopes of sunny days and memories of bus trips and alleyways, their paths mirror one another, will they ever meet or will there always be space between them?​ Projekt Z is a live show which combines image, music and dance-theatre to create a unique experience for an audience. Co-created by international signdance pioneers Signdance Collective and Austrian performance company, Transmitter. The show comprises a series of songs with strong visual content.
In partnership with 73 Degree Films, Wycombe Arts Centre, Dramaturgy Pedro De Senna, Movement Director, Kate Lawrence, Spoken Word Poet, Lionel M. Macauley, Composer, Richard Pollock and Director, Ozan Gokmen. The project will break new ground for combining music, movement, Signtheatre, dance and film.
Created in the UK, Austria, Turkey and USA.

The Turtle Trials

Initially inspired by Dr Suess’ poem ‘Yertle The Turtle’, the project offers a unique opportunity for young people to learn about turtles through sign language, dance, music, scent and storytelling. ‘The Turtle Trials’ is a fully inclusive, interactive and immersive project, designed to help young people learn more about the environment and how we can all engage more positively with it.

 The project breaks down barriers that constrain inclusivity and provide an important access point for all young people (including BME, deaf and disabled people) to enjoy a fun, powerful, exciting and educational experience.

 The audience will learn about various concepts through a unique fusion of signdance theatre and several languages (Welsh, Spanish, English and International Sign), helping to break down communication barriers and open up discussions about where we live and our sense of belonging in a highly visual and inclusive manner.  “We are looking forward to welcoming children and their families across North Wales to the Turtle Trials...the workshops are guaranteed to be fun and a chance to explore the stories of turtles and conservation.” David Bower


Four years in the making, this major production of Caridad's Svich's "Carthage/Cartagena" continues to astound and move audiences worldwide with its simple human truths lovingly told. A sincere production with a genuine message.
