This year performance, we will be doing creative tasks to honor Shakespeare. No, we will not read and or perform Shakespeare's work in traditional ways. Instead, we will do songs that refer to him like how Patti Smith, well-known Godmother of punk singer/poet, mentions Shakespeare in her "Looking For You" song. We will translate that song in ASL all together as a group in interactive activities. Another example is "I Hate Shakespeare" by Spamalot play, which we sign along that song in ASL full of humor. Also, my original work "Shakespeare's Immortality" will be performed in ASL and it focuses on the fact that his work is still alive today. Other work has just mime activities without sign language, dance movements along one Shakespeare work (Romeo and Juliet), and many other experimental ideas.
This show will be unusual and unique.
