Artist Statement:
For most of my life, I have been "spoken" or "voiced" by people on my behalf, sometimes involuntarily. As a Deaf person, voices come in many forms and are mostly functional: platforms, benefits, privileges, identities and hierarchies. In order to work with voices, there is a great deal of trust and collaboration involved to make my voices accurately represented. Text, images and sound files will be presented during the performance.
