Here at Solar Bear we create work that is impactful, makes the invisible visible, and sparks debate and dialogue. We hope that by sharing our best practice guidance infographic and documents we can support and encourage the sector to widen access for Deaf audiences across the UK.

As with our own programme of work, we hope this guidance will allow other companies and artists to think in new and different ways; be inspired to forge new theatrical languages and ways of storytelling that will be more open, expressive and startling.
