About the Event

Signing for the theater is a different style and presentation than signing for the classroom or conversationally.  This workshop is for those who would like to interpret for theatre, or to sign with “stage presence”. Participants will learn techniques and ways to hone skills to that will them be more expressive, and a more streamlined part of theatrical interpreting work. These techniques also help interpreters in other work environments in terms of clarity, role assignment, and reducing lag time.

1.  Represent different roles;

2.  Convey different dialects/tones of voice, and even poetical/musical speech;

3.  Translate different styles of text into visually clear information.
