The Birthday of the Infanta

The Birthday of the Infanta

02/08/2013 19:30

Eastwood Park Theatre

Solar Bear Deaf Youth Theatre

Adapted from Oscar Wilde’s bittersweet short story and performed in Deaf Youth Theatre’s own unique storytelling style, The Birthday of the Infanta captures a transitional moment of choice when the heart could melt or freeze.

It was the birthday of the Infanta. She was coming of age, falling in love and recognising her own vulnerability and prejudices. What happens when you judge and are judged? What happens when a lifetime of being told what to think results in damaging assumptions? This is a compelling exploration of the power of communication, class and the prejudice of difference.

Drawing on the passion and rhythms of Spain, combined with live music and shadow puppetry, Solar Bear's DYT invites you on a visual and musical journey through the constraints of social hierarchies, a moment of awakening and the courage needed to change.
