The Black Drum

Hosted by Soulpepper / Deaf Culture Centre


50 Tank House Lane, Toronto, ON, Canada

June 15 – 29

A young woman’s life is turned upside down when her tattoos come alive and propel her on a fantastical journey in search of her own inner voice.

Faces, hands, and movements are our poetry. In The Black Drum, by Deaf Canadian playwright Adam Pottle, Deaf actors tell their story through physical theatre, signed music, projection, and dance while motion capture enhances their graceful rhythms. Audiences are invited to experience this pioneering new work unlike any other.
