Bim Ajadi – Here Not Here

HERE/NOT HERE is a deaf hip-hop music drama, designed for theatrical stages and site-specific outdoor spaces. It showcases a new visual language for story-telling combining sign, dance, music and Visual Vernacular.

Most of us are “in the middle” of something – our ethnicity, hearing, age or other label. Funky, funny and thought-provoking, HERE/NOT HERE explores how we all try to find our place and is set in an urban, outdoor sports pitch used by different groups of people throughout the day.

Directed by Bim Ajadi, and led by disabled artists HERE/NOT HERE can be fully enjoyed by hearing and deaf audiences. It will have both a live and a standalone film iteration.
