Sign Language Arts Workshop

Welcome to join us November 2021!

Riksteatern Crea presents Sign Language Arts that aims to explore the fine arts of Sign Language poetry and Visual Vernacular.

During the spring of 2021 Riksteatern Crea launched a series of online workshops for a group of selected artists to deepen the discussion about arts in Sign Language. Two of them were webinars open for anyone to participate and follow. The first one was held 6 February with poet Debbie Z. Rennie and VV artist Giuseppe Giuranna and moderated by Riksteatern Crea actress Mette Marqvardsen (Watch video below). The second webinar was held 12 June with the trio accompanied by the VV artists, Nicola Della Maggiora, Simon Attia and Julia Pelhate as well as the poets Peter Cook, Rosaria Giuranna and Fernanda de Araujo Machado.

18–21 November 2021 there will be a four-day workshop in Stockholm, Sweden, at Riksteatern Crea’s base where artists will be able to gather and work together with Debbie and Giuseppe to continue to explore theses fine arts of Sign Language. If you are a poet or VV artist THIS is for you!

Interested? Apply NOW with your CV with your past work and 2-3 different poetry or VV videos of yourself to crea@riksteatern.se. Type “Sign Language Arts Workshop” as topic.

Last application date is 31 August!
