Being a father in the 21st century is complicated. Being the father of a young son of mixed South Indian, Turkish & Austrian heritage, even more so.
Three very different stories of being and having a dad are brought together with humour and sensitivity, through physical theatre and multilingual text.
Centred around everyday, relatable experiences, this original new work explores fatherhood across generations from the 1960s to the present day.
Fatherhood features a deaf character who uses BSL as well as his own home language, a version of sign language that individual families and communities develop, often where deaf and hearing people need to communicate. The show also features several different spoken languages, Turkish, Malayalam, Tamil and German.
Every performance of Fatherhood includes creative, integrated captions. These will translate spoken and signed languages as well as describe sounds for deaf and hard of hearing audiences. The sound design also reflects the experience of sound by the deaf character.
Suitable for 12+
