Another first for Sound Warriors!
Led by Derby University’s Associate Professor of Applied Theatre, Dr Ava Hunt and a team of her postgraduate students, a group of young performers from Derby Youth Theatre have pulled off another first. The young actors have become Sound Warriors and created their own take on why unwanted sound matters to everyone.

The young people of Derby Youth Theatre and Derby Deaf Youth Theatre co-created these movies, under the guidance of Associate Professor of Applied Theatre, Dr Ava Hunt and two of her fantastic MA students, Becca and Daisy.
The idea for the production was commissioned by us, Hearing Ambassadors, who approached Dr Hunt last year to ask her to help with their latest project, Sound Warriors. Dr Hunt’s mission was to work with young people to co-create an engaging piece of theatre which explains to people of their age how hearing works and why it is so important to be aware of excessive noise when listening to loud music in discos, gyms, and gigs.
