The Black Drum

Soulpepper is pleased to partner with the DEAF CULTURE CENTRE on this extraordinary, signed music musical to elevate the Deaf community’s “place” in the Canadian arts landscapes.

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, 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.

Note: This production is presented with an English synopsis.
