A story of communication, articulation and what it means to be heard.

Inspired by real life events, Buffalo Boy, tells the story of Thouen as he leaves his home where he struggles to be understood and heads in search of a place where he can express himself.

“All of us want to be heard, and all of us need to be heard. Sometimes the ones that need listening to the most have got the quietest voices.”

– Rich Poynton, Director, Buffalo Boy

“[it’s] quite ground-breaking, it’s certainly unlike anything I’ve seen before.

…The use of projection, the use of voice, obviously, movement. All those different things, to bring them all together and mix it up and see what the product is that’s what art is about, it’s about exploring these things”

– Ruth Brill, Dancer, Birmingham Royal Ballet
