Evolving from Old to New Signs

This workshop will give you plenty of examples of old, obsolete signs that you may want to eliminate from your repertoire, and new, modern-day representations. Through the years, Trix has spent a vast amount of time mentoring interpreters. She noticed that a lot of interpreters continue to use outdated signs without thinking about changes and signs that represent what we actually use right now; Trix has put together a fascinating workshop offering updated signs.

If we use outdated signs, how do we expect Deaf students to grasp the ideas we are trying to convey? We will have demonstrations showing outdated signs and current signs.

This information has been gleaned from various schools. There will be several opportunities for hands-on practice. We’ll share some sign bloopers that easily cause misunderstanding, and we’ll work on how to target the true meaning of certain expressions.

It’s amazing how so many signs have evolved! Take advantage of this opportunity to nostalgically remember old-time signing and to become more aware of present-day signs.

“The Trix Bruce ASL Storytelling Spotlight”
Yes, Trix is profoundly Deaf – but don’t be afraid to approach her! Using ideas from the audience – whether people know sign language or not – Trix captivates with an impromptu mix of pantomime, drama and comedy for a night of hearty laughter! There are words, and then there is Trix Bruce. She can tell you the story of her life, without uttering a word. Trix is a storyteller, a poet, an actress, and a one-Deaf woman show. Family Friendly*.
