We are delighted to announce that 73 Degree Media will be a partner for SignDance Collective International's latest project 'The Turtle Trials'.

Our very own Rob Corcoran will be working alongside SDC this summer as a producer, joining them on various sections of the tour as well as working from 73DM's base in Wrexham.

International touring company and pioneers of signdance theatre, SignDance Collective will also be working with Arts Council of Wales, The Ucheldre Centre and Undegun to deliver the project.

‘The Turtle Trials’ is a fully inclusive, interactive and immersive project, funded by Arts Council of Wales, designed to help young people learn more about the environment and how we can all engage more positively with it. It will offer a unique opportunity for them to learn through sign language, dance, music, scent and storytelling.

The project will break down barriers that constrain participation and provide an important access point for all young people (including BME, deaf and disabled people) to enjoy a fun, powerful, exciting and educational experience.

The audience will learn about various concepts through a unique fusion of signdance theatre and several languages (Welsh, Spanish, English and International Sign), helping to breaking down communication barriers and open up discussions about where we live and our sense of belonging in a highly visual and inclusive manner.  

“We are looking forward to welcoming children and their families across North Wales to the Turtle Trials...the workshops are guaranteed to be fun and a chance to explore the stories of turtles and conservation.” - David Bower
