Meet the students challenging perceptions with new accessible stage adaptation

A group of Royal Conservatoire students have taken a unique stage adaptation on tour, playfully exploring different ways of making work for both D/deaf and hearing audiences.

The students, undertaking BA Performance in British Sign Language (BSL) and English at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, collaborated with Solar Bear to produce a stage version of Caryl Churchill’s Love and Information, embarking on their first professional tour in November 2017.  Most scenes are in BSL, some in English, some a mix of both, along with on-stage captioning. We spoke to the team to find out more.

How would you describe Love and Information?

Jessica Brettle (Production Designer): Love and Information is a play with a series of 50 scenes split into seven sections with no set characters or settings or situations. It is a text of conversations that you can have in everyday life which everyone can relate to in some way. The characters and settings are for the cast and director to decide upon. The characters chosen and the settings can change the way the text comes across. Therefore showing us that information and how we relay it can change the way it is perceived.

Jonathan Lloyd (Director): The play is about how we try to make sense of the world around us. All of the decisions are left to the director and actors to make so it was exciting and daunting to work on!

EJ Raymond (Actress): I would describe Love and Information as based on real life, out there in the real world. It doesn’t matter who those people are, their colour of skin, their disability, their culture, etc. Anyone at any given time could be going through similar versions of the stories.
