Information about Bernard Bragg’s workshop:

Native signers utilize Visual Vernacular (VV) in their everyday
conversations mostly among themselves, especially when describing or
illustrating action. For the purpose of performing in pure VV on the stage,
one must do away with signs or words completely. The performer remains
within the film frame, so to speak, presenting a montage of cross-cuts and
cutaway views. Close-up views, the long shot, the panoramic view, zooming,
slow motion, fast motion – – all are the movements of the human body.
*Developed by Bernard Bragg (1960)
