Scored in Silence

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

The atomic bombs that fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki changed the world and Japanese deaf artist Chisato Minamimura wants to share how they changed people. Prepare to be mesmerised as Chisato’s performance triggers visuals, sound and vibration, blending sign language with vibrotactility, relaying the stories of the remaining deaf ‘hibakusha,’ survivors, scored in silence.

Friday 19 October 2018, 2pm – 2.45pm and 8pm – 8.45pm
