Returning after their LDIF18 debut, Urban Jazz Dance Company will present a mixed bill of work exploring issues affecting the international Deaf community. The company interweave American sign-language with urban jazz rhythms to create thought-provoking performances that capture the imagination.

Deaf’s IMPRISONED explores what it means to be living in a “prison within a prison” as a Deaf person in the criminal justice system. The evening will explore the tension between Deaf utopia and Deaf diaspora.

The company, featuring Deaf and hearing dancers, is led by award-winning African-American Deaf choreographer, Antoine Hunter, who has been featured in DeafLife Magazine, Dance Spirit Magazine and has been featured on CNN’s The Great Big Story. Zahna Simon, the company’s assistant director, will join Antoine Hunter for question and answers. Antoine Hunter and Urban Jazz Dance Company are the driving force behind Bay Area International Deaf Dance Festival.

Age Recommendation 12+

With British Sign Language Interpretation by Stacey Green (right of the stage).
