Written 27 years ago, The Vagina Monologues is based on writer V’s “Vagina Interviews” conducted with 200 women all around the world. This collection of funny, lively and emotional monologues represents the untold experiences of women in a powerful theatrical experience, presented for the first time in a British Sign Language performance on this scale; an unmissable celebration of womanhood and sexuality.

Extra introductory show Kitchen's Light

Short stories and poetry in Dutch Sign Language

Kitchen’s Light is a group of performers who give their own presentations in their native language, Dutch Sign Language (NGT). Kitchen’s Light was founded in 2019, after a series of workshops by spoken word artist Elten Kiene.

The group brings ‘signed word’ performances, individually or collectively, in freestyle pieces, classical sign poetry and ‘visual vernacular’ (an ‘own’ form of presentation of sign languages). Story telling and sign dancing (songs and music translated into sign language) are also in the repertoire.
