American Sign Language as Art Form

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Theater, concerts, festivals, and Broadway have opened their stages to American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters. The interpretation of music and lyrics in ASL is an art form that requires special awareness and training. This class focuses on the difference between "conversational" ASL and ASL techniques used to express lyrics set to rhyme and music. The course includes a history and discussion of deaf performers in theater, movies, and television. Some knowledge of ASL is desirable, but this course will benefit anyone wishing to build self-confidence and improve their communication skills.
