Details

Celebrating Hearing Awareness Week and the launch of the photography publication Earshot.

Melbourne Recital Centre and Musicians For Hearing present a special Auslan interpreted evening to engage our senses and make us question the experiences of sound.

Experimental sounds from Jannah Quill and a performance from Deaf dancer Anna Seymour make us think about how our bodies respond to and feel sound. Melbourne duo No Mono also deliver an ethereal and evocative Auslan interpreted performance.

Earshot

Melbourne photographer Kate Disher-Quill launches her latest photography book Earshot, a poignant collection of beautiful photographs and personal stories offering a rare, visceral insight into the world of deafness and hearing loss. With stories from over 35 people and a foreword from Human Rights disability commissioner Alastair McEwin, Earshot is a unique compilation of intimate, personal portrayals which reveal the heartbreak, joy, struggles, achievements, and complexities of deafness.
