‘And before you can say damaged male ego, we’re holed up on a four foot square rock for the rest of eternity…’
When three Greek women defy the want of Zeus and are cursed with a deadly voice, the famous myth of the Sirens is born. But when they find out that the truth about them may have been a bit more than ‘tweaked’, they are catapulted to Hastings beach in 2019 with one mission: rewrite history.
Using breathtaking visual storytelling, stunning projections and a lot of feathers, Zoo Co’s award winning show Sirens sticks two fingers up at gender expectations and asks, when your voice is silenced, how do you stand up and shout out?
Sirens is creatively captioned and BSL inclusive, with a Deaf and hearing cast. We welcome d/Deaf and hearing audiences.
On Friday April 19th there is a free BSL tour of MK Gallery‘s exhibition “The Lie of the Land” at 12 noon. Booking online is essential (free).
“Gain insight into the artists, works and rich themes of MK Gallery’s inaugural exhibition, The Lie of the Land. This event is delivered in BSL only and is suitable for anyone who uses or is learning BSL, led by dance artist and choreographer Chisato Minimamura.”

We had a nice Community Police Officer come visit our Wednesday Afternoon Club on 15th November 2017 to chat with members of the MK Deaf Zone and the deaf community about deaf awareness and how to improve access with the Police!
He particularly enjoyed the company of our Hearing Dogs for the Deaf!
Also nice to see our new MK Deaf Zone volunteer t-shirts being worn!
Thank you Jean Lawrence for the pictures!
#C3067@ThamesVP Spent 90 minutes with members of the MK Deaf Zone in Broughton Milton Keynes today and have been both inspired and humbled.
I have come away with ideas and alternative ways of thinking about how we work with and assist members of the deaf community to share. pic.twitter.com/f0KJFnS6ro
