People of the Third Eye

Poster for "People of the Third Eye", featuring an illustration of an eye overseeing several pairs of hands. Ticket information is provided below.

The show is a unique work showcasing slices of Deaf lives-both contemporary and historical. Created collaboratively by the cast members, audiences will be treated to various genres of ASL performance art—poetry, narrative personal experiences, creative storytelling, reenactment of historical events, as well as dramatic monologues and dialogues. Woven into the action on stage will be film clips and live painting. Bookending the play will be a contemporary encounter with a well-known historical Deaf figure who still has much to teach us.

Directors: Patti Durr and Karen Christi
