Performance of Antigone in ASL

Antigone, Performed with American Sign Language Interpretation

The Department of Theatre and Dance presented their first ASL-interpreted show in recent history, a Spring 2022 mainstage production of Antigone. Directed by Professor of Practice Ryder Thornton, students of Linguistics Visiting Assistant Professor Denise Crochet contributed a breathtaking interpretation—a collaboration suggested by graduate student Brendon Mullenix and facilitated by Assistant Professor Jenny Mercein. The project will be presented at the AATE conference this summer, following bolstered excitement from CODA's historic win at the 2022 Oscars.
