“It has been wonderful to connect with the work that Nicole Vivien Watson and Paul Miller are leading. Since the BA Performance programme was launched in 2015 as the first dedicated conservatoire training in the UK for deaf performers we have appreciated this relationship and the opportunity it gives us to share knowledge and practice. We were delighted to be invited to the performance of ‘Where our Roots are Planted’ and to take part in a workshop with International artist Antoine Hunter.
