Part of the Fringe Central Events Programme for Fringe participants. In 2015, the RCS launched the only degree course of its kind in Europe, with an aim to train D/deaf performers. RCS’ Rita McDade leads a session for those interested in or currently working with D/deaf performers and will explore the possibilities of collaborating between languages. For those new to BSL, you will learn some basic language and discover the history of BSL and deaf culture.
