Building on Monica Nicolaides’ successes at Resolution!, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, The Blue Elephant Theatre and The Riley Theatre this “assured and talented choreographer” (Cloud Dance Festival, 2013) has thrown herself into a project centering around the movement of British Sign Language.

‘SIGNS’ has been in creation since last year having an intense development period this summer including sessions with Candoco BSL specialists and a dance workshop at Oak Lodge School Wandsworth for young people with additional support and communication needs.

‘SIGNS’ will be performed on Saturday 3rd September at 7.30pm at Young Actors Theatre, Islington. The Natashas Project will be performing NATASHAS, as part of this exciting evening.

This performance marks the end of this research and development period for Monica and the dancers and the start of the piece’s life outside of the studio.

Alongside, we have been developing our workshops to promote British Sign Language and engage with the deaf community.
