high line sign language performance


Date & Time

Last event was Saturday, April 23, 2016


On the High Line under the Standard Hotel at Little West 12th Street

What do a subway to the moon, superhero wolves, and a Medusa with slithering, signing snakes all have in common? They sprang from the imaginations of students at PS347, The American Sign Language and English Lower School. Join Daisy as she traverses the rich mosaic of New York, the outer boroughs, and beyond in "How The I Becomes The We." You'll meet a multitude of fascinating creatures, all brought to life by deaf and hearing actors under the direction of Kim Weild and the production of Jill Bernard from Other Voices. Suitable for all children.

ASL interpreters will be available at the visitor information stations on the High Line at Gansevoort Street and at 16th Street. Interpretation will also be available at this and several other performances throughout the program. Special thanks to ASL English Interpretation program (AEIP) at CUNY/ LaGuardia for providing this service.

In the event of rain or inclement weather, this program will be rescheduled to Saturday, April 30, same time.

Other Voices was founded in 2015 by Kim Weild and Jill Bernard. The company creates new, bold, and innovative works of art that bridge socioeconomic and cultural divides in a variety of mediums. In the last couple of years they've been working with artists and pieces that were created originally, and often performed in American Sign Language (ASL).

Culture Shock is generously supported by Adam Norbury & R. Martin Chavez.
Public Programs on the High Line are supported by Altman Foundation. These programs are supported, in part, with public funds from the New York City Council, under the leadership of Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
