Why am I Here?


Recommended Posts

Many years ago, I was artistic director of a small scale touring theatre company in Scotland, and I wanted to make our work as accessible as possible to as many people as possible. I engaged a mime artist who was also an experienced speaker of BSL to work with us, and she created a beautiful character who only communicated in BSL, and she taught the other cast members a few signs so that they could supplement their spoken text when necessary.  I aimed to learn BSL myself, but life and the universe had other plans for me.

Now is my time. I'm ready.

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
