“I see the world from three perspectives…”

What happens to a person’s identity when twenty years of progressive deafness is suddenly reversed?

A one person show about going deaf and becoming a Cochlear Implanted Cyborg.

Sophie Woolley performs her show about the experience of going deaf and going hearing again via cochlear implantation.

If you would like to come and give feedback on the next R&D) you can book to see the public scratch performances for a fiver in advance at Ovalhouse 12-14 July. Every date has live palantype captions. (When the show goes into full production in 2019, the subtitles will be designed as part of the show.) On 13 July there will be an after show discussion which is palantyped and BSL interpreted by Jacqui Beckford.

Augmented has been developed with support from Sheffield Theatres, Ovalhouse, Poplar Union and Pulse Festival.
