Information forwarded on from Deaffest:
Deaffest Arts & Film Festival is offering free VV workshops to deaf or hard of hearing students aged 13 and over on Friday 16th May 2014 from 9am – 4pm at Light House Media Centre, Wolverhampton.
VV or Visual Vernacular is an art form significant in the Deaf and signing world. It is a form of physical theatre performed by Deaf artists in an entirely visual manner, without any form of BSL (British Sign Language) using the entire body, iconic gestures and facial expression to tell a rhythmic story.

We are inviting schools, colleges and universities to attend the workshop on Friday 16th, and give their students a unique opportunity to learn this fascinating art form from a world expert. The workshop is free to attend.
Please contact Jack Smallwood to book your group or for further information.
 Internationally acclaimed Visual Vernacular expert Giuseppe Giuranna, “The V V Maestro” will be bringing his magnificent skills to Deaffest 2014 with a package of workshops and performances throughout the festival weekend, 16 – 18 May.
Deaffest launched its V V project back in 2012 with an open stage performance event, following up in 2013 with the UK V V competition.
