Looking for Deaf performers for the fall

Hi everyone,

I recently took the reins of my college's ASL Collective (at Hampshire College in MA), and as part of that I amsupposed to organize a Deaf event for the coming semester. I waswondering if anyone had any personal recommendations of Deafperformers, presenters, or groups that you've seen. We recently (justthis weekend actually) hosted a performance of the Flying Words Projectwith Peter Cook and Kenny Lerner, and that got a great response fromthe community. We had a fair number of students come, but even moreexciting was the fact that about 2/3 of the audience were Deaf peoplefrom the area who heard about the event. We're looking to do somethingsimilar in the fall, but with different performers.

Does anyonehave recommendations of really good Deaf performers that we might tryto book for the fall? Any stories you have to tell about performancesyou've seen would also be appreciated.

Many thanks,

Drew
