About this event

Deaf Artist, Peter Blockey is realizing his dream of making a production utilizing his art and expressing it in all the ways he has visualized.

This is a multi-media production that involves film with captions, music & music videos previously produced by Peter, movement & dance performance, Auslan signed songs & conversation, with Auslan interpretation. Deaf theatre that all can understand and an insight into a Deaf person's journey of isolation, from being unable to communicate easily with others, unsure how to express artistic desire to an age of technology & connection, that finally allows Deaf to communicate in so many ways now, with both Deaf & hearing worlds so "We CAN share"!

Supported by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.

Presented by:
Peter Blockey

Peter was born Profoundly Deaf in Harvey, WA. He grew up in an all-hearing family with 4 brothers. Auslan was not taught to Peter until he was 11. He is also the only artist that he knows of in the family. At first, Peter found it difficult to navigate as a Deaf artist in a hearing world, but with the introduction of technology that allows him to not only communicate with other Deaf but also with hearing people, he has taken off on his journey to realizing all his artistic dreams.
Pete didn't foresee how important & appealing Auslan would become to the world, one day, but he puts it into perspective regarding an adult view: "When I was 11, I saw people using Auslan for the first time. Because I was small back then, it seemed big to me. As I grew up, I realized how small it really was."
