Grayson Perry x Deafinitely Theatre Badge
This image made us laugh and it serves a good cause ...
Deafinitely Theatre is the UK's first professional Deaf-launched and led theatre company, creating bilingual productions of classic and contemporary plays for Deaf and hearing audiences that combine the visual storytelling of British Sign Language with the immediacy of spoken English.
"Grayson Perry's image of the white cat is a strong representation of deafness. Many white cats, including my own, are born Deaf due to their genetics and people often assume these pets are unable to fend for themselves because of their deafness, but Grayson and I both know that such animals are just as independent and strong-willed as any hearing cat!"
- Paula Garfield, Artistic Director, Deafinitely Theatre
