R&D Concept: 'Somebody's Watching Me.'

'Somebody's Watching Me' is a cutting edge digital dance show. Dance will be challenged by fusing the highly expressive dance style of Hip Hop with sign language and Deaf culture's own Visual Vernacular. It's a narrative that will appeal to young people that's set in a dystopian future, where social justice has gone and tyranny prevails; Deaf people/sign language users are under surveillance. Unable to 'whisper' the two protagonists Billy Read and Ariel Fung will use their dance skills to create a visual vocabulary to lead a rebellion amongst young Deaf street dancers. 'Somebody's Watching Me' will explore the theme of surveillance; we all live life under a lens and cameras follow our every move. This affects the Deaf sign language using community. It's a powerful metaphor, revealing the omnipresence of surveillance in the information age.
