I am Deaf American but have lived in Sweden for many years now, working as a freelance artist, directing, acting, making films, travelling and giving lectures and workshops on  theater and sign language poetry.  I teach deaf children theatre arts: movements, acting, poetry, and storytelling. It is so important to educate deaf kids to have bilingual language. It provides a rich education for young minds. I grew up in English and I wanted to learn Spanish but I wasn’t allowed to learn another language because of my poor English. Now, I am living in Sweden so I get many new ideas and different perspectives in my mind. Poetry in Sign Language experiments with language itself, like making movies. I feel it will be an honor to come to the Festival and share my knowledge of Poetry in Sign language and learn new things from new people including the Deaf British poets.
