The Art of Sign Language in Theatre

Date: Mar 13, 2019

Deadline: Mar 22, 2019 - 6:00 pm

Please join us on Friday, March 22 at 6 pm at Inside Out Theatre’s studio for a presentation from our new Artistic Associate for Deaf Arts and Creative Integration, Landon Krentz. The Art of Sign Language in Theatre explores how sign language is more than just a service added to a presentation or performance.

How do we incorporate sign language into the development of theatre, from playwriting to directing? This workshop presentation will discuss different types of theatrical frameworks that allow deaf artists and ASL performers to be seen in the artistic process and offers some tools and resources for theatre practitioners to build a more impactful experience for both deaf and hearing audiences. 

This event is free and will run for approximately an hour and a half, including a question and answer portion. Doors will open at 6 p.m., with the presentation beginning at 6:30 p.m. Our new studio space is located at Eau Claire Market (200 Barclay Parade, unit A02). Snacks and refreshments will be provided and there will be an informal gathering in our common area afterwards to mingle and reflect.  ASL interpreters will be available. 

We’re really excited to have Landon join us and witness the impact he will have in our community. We hope you can attend! For more information or any accessibility concerns please contact jeremy@insideouttheatre.com  or Ashley@insideouttheatre.com.
