Artist and Interpreter. Power Language Access

Unperforming Work

Louise Ashcroft has been putting together her evenings titled Unperforming for the past five years. I have been involved in several of these events now in both 2015 and 2019. The work I have tried out in these evenings has been experimental, considering how I can use performance to explore the role of Interpreter that I hold in my other work. The power relations in this role, the assumptions made by members of the public about this work, about sign language and about the people who do the job.
