Theatre Review for “Tell” a show about Oralism and teaching deaf children in Ireland

A very late night blog post but I need to get this up quickly so you don't miss your chance to see this great show! If you have always wanted to understand the politics behind why some deaf people sign and others don't, and to understand why Irish and French people can communicate better than they can with their other neighbours .. or what it is like to be overloaded and overwhelmed as to how you process and take in information - THIS is the show for you! Go see as part of the latest THEATREclub festival...

Tell - part of THEATRECLUB THE THEATRE MACHINE TURNS YOU ON: Vol 3

The real irony for me too was that outside the theatre is a collection of tables for you to write you comments and ideas.. we began using this method of writing onto the tables dirrectly at The Homework Club almost 3 years ago because we had a number of profoundly deaf students at the time and they were finding it hard to follow maths in particular! By writing onto the tables we reduced the distance to the material, no one needed to turn their back to write on the board and you were able to instantly write your questions and keep the group dynamic going regardless of your hearing needs! There was no space for "lost in translation."

This show for me shows the idea of what it is like to not be able to read and what it feels like for me on a daily basis faced with written material to decipher. In fact at times in the show with the noise levels, video, pictures and movement I was hard pushed not to be really overwhelmed! This is what it feels like in the written world for me, especially in school and university! The classic trick to show this is that you turn a radio to white noise and continue talking - this show demonstrates this idea to a intense scale beyond anything I have ever experienced!

 

Enjoy the show 🙂 Dr Naoisé Expression Developist

Introduction

Welcome to the Confidence Club

One step closer to fulfilling a personal dream of mine - "to make school a happier, creative, more successful and enjoyable place for all students, regardless of their differences"... Dr. Naoisé O'Reilly

There is always a balance between making long term changes in education and supporting those people currently in the system!

One of the many reasons why Students attending The Homework Club become so successful is because of the awareness they have of their own Potential, Personality and Learning Style and how these effect their own educational success. Every Student at The Homework Club is set-up to work to their best abilities within the environment through an initial interview.

The Confidence Club now offers this service to everybody, especially those restricted through distance and who aren't able to attend our classes at The Homework Club.
