Storytelling without words

A new chapter of inclusive entertainment opens at the Millennium Centre this month as storytellers Megan Lloyd and Mark MacQueen present a new show especially appropriate for deaf children.

Deaf performer MacQueen and Welsh storyteller Lloyd have collaborated on Stories Without Speech, a visually motivated show suitable for everyone whether hearing impaired or not. 

The performance is a collaboration between Welsh international storytelling festival Beyond The Border, NCDS and the Me2 Project.

Artistic director of Beyond The Border, David Ambrose, is confident that Stories Without Speech will be “absolutely accessible” for deaf and non-deaf audience members alike. He says, “Everything will be told in two languages – English, and BSL.”

Stories Without Speech will be performed on the Millennium Centre’s Glafna Stage on 16 November.
