Follow the Signs
Author(s): Chris Fonseca and Harry Jardine, music by Yacoub Didi
Company: Follow the Signs in association with Soho Theatre
Chris is Deaf in a hearing world. Chris is black on a racist island.
No code. No imprint. No escape.
But this is not a tragedy. This is a story of hope. This is a story about owning your identity.
A fully BSL-integrated hip-hop gig theatre show, Follow the Signs is performed through BSL, rap, spoken English, movement, and creative captioning.
It tells the story of acclaimed dancer and choreographer Chris Fonseca: from infanthood when he lost his hearing after contracting meningitis, through a school system unable to value his differences, into teenage years where music and dance entered his life, to the present where he owns his place in the world.
