S ophie Stone extends her right arm and lets her hand float downwards while moving her fore and middle fingers back and forth. With this gesture, the actor transports us from a lunchtime bar at the Wales Millennium Centre to a moonlit night in occupied France, where women parachute through the sky. The title comes from a codename for a project established by the Special Operations Executive during the second world war. Fluent French-speaking women from England and Wales were recruited and trained as spies and saboteurs, before being flown across the Channel to join the resistance. But this is not mere translation; it is deaf-led. Stone identifies as Deaf with a capital D, which asserts deafness as a culture — rich with its own history, arts, languages and organisations — as opposed to solely the audiological condition, marginalised by a hearing world. These were extraordinary but ultimately invisible performances, undertaken in extraordinary circumstances. As a leading figure in disability arts and culture in the UK, foregrounding often marginalised bodies and voices is central to her work. Acclaimed for her writing specifically for deaf and disabled performers, her work invites audiences to interrogate our preconceptions of the centre and the periphery.
We are just north of you in White Rock and see these fellows around our flowers on the 7th floor balcony. Thanks for capturing the baby's instinctive growing and grooming. The X-T4 brings image stabilization and a larger battery to the X-T series, but dig a bit deeper and you'll find a host of improvements and tweaks. See what we've discovered in the X-T3's sister model. Nikon's combined the best of its DSLR and mirrorless cameras into one tough-built body, equally well-suited for stills as it is for video. For effectively modernizing one of the brand's all-star camera lines, it receives our silver award. With a slew of significant updates, the Fujifilm XV's formula remains the same as the previous models; it's stylish, engaging to use, and takes great pictures.
