The World Premiere of Deafinitely Theatre's newest play, TANIKA'S JOURNEY, comes to The Vault, Southwark Playhouse for four weeks, directed by Company Artistic Director Paula Garfield
Tanika is a young woman isolated in the heart of a foreign forest, halfway through a journey which takes her from her home and her childhood to a new world; confusing, frightening and terrifyingly grown-up.
Tanika's Journey is a visually stunning and highly imaginative insight into the world of a young Sri Lankan girl who escapes from the aftermath of a bloody war and embarks on a dangerous journey that will push her to the limits.
Using magical and visual storytelling, Deafinitely Theatre explores the head and heart of Tanika as she makes this journey against all the odds. Is it dry bread and water or a magnificent feast? Could that be her mother calling or the whispering wind? The company invite you into their world of magical reality, from darkness to light and back again, as both Tanika herself and the journey before her unfold in front of the audience's eyes.
Recently heralded as "theatre for everyone" by The Guardian, Deafinitely Theatre specializes in untold stories brought to life through the eloquence of sign.
The same team which brought the critically acclaimed BSL Love's Labour's Lost to Shakespeare's Globe; director, Paula Garfield; assistant director, Andrew Muir and creative interpreter, Kate Furby now bring the unique Deafinitely style to Southwark Playhouse.
