With the creation of the DATT (Deaf Artist & Theatre Tool kit) in 2016 by Cahoots Theatre with feedback from the Deaf and Theatre community, many more theatres across Canada are offering ASL Interpreted shows. This is more than just putting an ASL interpreter on stage for a show or two. There are scheduling concerns, rehearsal logistics, tech, marketing, language and cultural considerations in performance and front of house that must be thought through. What is the role and the responsibility of the stage manager in these scenarios? What things do you need to know if you are working with a Deaf actor? Join Catherine McKinnon, BFA (Actor & Deaf Community Consultant) and Anita Small, EdD (Cross -Cultural Consultant, Educator, Linguist and Researcher) as they walk us through the process of working with the Deaf Community both in the rehearsal hall and in the theatre.
