FRENCH expats and Francophiles will put on a performance that honours the life of deaf-blind author and activist Helen Keller.
The Perth French Theatre’s (PFT) play Tempete will be performed at Locally Crafted in Burswood during late May and early June.
The play will be performed in French with English subtitles, which are captions projected on a screen above the stage.
PFT director Stella Sulak said the idea of the company was to give French learners an opportunity to practice and mix in with French expats.
“We wanted to perform something about the senses and the life story of Helen Keller is amazing,” she said.
“The preparations have been going excellent, it’s been interesting to work with actors and dancers.
“We want to give the audience a sensory experience.”
Actor Pierre Bessiere, who plays the role of Helen Keller’s father Arthur, said the play would transport people to another time.
“I think everyone in the play has been touched by Helen’s story,” he said.
“We’ve been doing blind exercises, which has been an interesting experience.”
PFT began in 2014 and provides French drama classes for adults and children.
