Bubble & Butch by Rinkoo Barpaga

The bullying and discrimination stops when Bubble is asked to look after a mean-looking dog called Butch. Acting like a superhero at every encounter in the hearing world, Butch transforms Bubble’s life for the better. In a highly visual style – a fusion of film and live performance utilising British Urban Sign Language – Rinkoo Barpaga reveals through Bubble and Butch the creativity and vulnerability of young, diverse Deaf people tackling double discrimination and isolation in the hearing & Deaf world.
