Apple Time is a bridge to all realms: a magical, liminal ‘third’ space, in which Deaf, Hard of Hearing, locals, newcomers, oral and signing come together to create entire new worlds. Blending puppetry and ASL poetry with traditional Deaf storytelling and ensemble theatre, Apple Time invites you on a mythical journey of immigration and migration on the Deaf high seas. Apple Time is about the longing for an invitation to participate in a community where all languages, cultures, and beliefs intersect to create a whole new intercultural space. For this reason, this event is accessible to all audience members regardless of language preferences.
Funded by the Artist in Schools grants from the Saskatchewan Arts Board and Canada Council for the Arts, our new production, Apple Time performed by Deaf and Hard of Hearing youth in the Winston Knoll Collegiate program and produced by Deaf Crows Collective is a contemporary, youth-driven vision of the future Deaf community. Both Deaf and Hearing Audiences welcome. Voice and ASL interpreting provided.
