The Deaf Artists & Theatres Toolkit (DATT) serves as a resource to increase the feasibility of collaborations between professional theatre companies and Deaf artists as well as to increase engagement with Deaf audiences. This online toolkit provides a guide for theatre companies and is informed by Cahoots Theatre’s research and learnings from the development and production of ULTRASOUND by deaf playwright, Adam Pottle in 2016, with input from the Deaf community, theatre community and audiences. A company interested in working with a Deaf artist or engaging with Deaf audiences can use these online resources for insights, processes, tips and templates, to sensitively and comprehensively navigate the development and production of a work involving Deaf artists and Deaf audiences in Canada.
