Entertainment

As an entertainer, my performances are crafted to fit various types of audiences. My goals as an entertainer are to inspire my audience, to educate them, to empower them, and to offer them enjoyment. Often, the shows I have created share my real life experiences as a Deaf Woman and a variety of original ASL literary works. My experience as an entertain is an outgrowth of my training in professional theatre and improv workshops. 

The Eagle flies over the world - ID: A white woman with dirty-blonde hair and black glasses wearing a black t-shirt and brown pants. She is signing like an eagle in personification. She is standing in front of a landscape of tree and plants by a gravel road on a mountain.

Journey of ASL Lit Demo- ID: A white woman with dirty-blonde hair and black glasses wearing a black t-shirt and signing a handshape "C" with each hand in front of a white background while she is performing.

This show specifically focuses on ASL literature and includes ASL poetry and ASL storytelling.  In terms of ASL storytelling, I have created ABC/123 stories, Visual Vernacular stories, stories with strong uses of personification, and ASL-Cinematic storytelling. This highly interactive show could be developed to match themes of particular events such as GALA celebrations, Birthdays, conferences, school events, and private parties. 

 

Length of performance: 15 min, 30 min or 60 min.
