In the year that the Dutch Sign Language (NGT) is recognized as an official language, Oerol is made as accessible as possible in many ways.
In the Oerol Lab, fifteen makers with different backgrounds in the performing arts will work with each other from their own expertise. Jascha Blume (deaf, visual artist and filmmaker) is one of them. Together they will explore the landscape and exchange ideas.
In addition to a large part of the program being subtitled, interpreted or audio-described, the film A Life of Hiccups is a special project in which Dutch Sign Language forms the basis for a spoken word performance. A Life of Hiccups it with English subtitles.
The Imaginary Island features three concerts programmed in collaboration with our partner Motel Mozaique. The young, talented artists S10, Anne-Fay and Gita Buhari will perform their concert in the landscape of Terschelling. In addition, every other day a music video will be launched by Froukje. All concerts are subtitled, audio-described or supplemented with an NGT interpreter.
A daily newspaper with coffee every day. The Daily Newspaper is published online. Readers of the newsletters will receive a daily update, and the newspaper can also be found on the website or on The Imaginary Island.
