An Extension to the Performer: On Dimensions, Roles and Support in a Sign Language Shadow-Interpreted Theatre Performance

We propose a talk/introduction about Sign Language Interpreting for Theatre, focusing on Shadow Interpreting. Using theoretical articles and essays, supported with our own experience of Sign language interpretation for theatre, we look at the issues involved in performing in two different languages at the same time and the building bridges between two cultures.
