ASL Opera – Call for Artists

ASL Opera Project

Welcoming artists from Montreal, Toronto, and beyond! Deadline to submit is February 13, 2019.

This project aims to fulfill four primary goals:

  1. To make traditional opera accessible to D/deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences.
  2. To conceive new, experimental ASL performance works, incorporating the visual, musical, and theatrical aspects of opera.
  3. To nourish a reciprocal cultural relationship between D/deaf and hearing communities.
  4. To explore the ways in which ASL can enhance and transform established classical forms for both D/deaf and hearing audiences.
