‘Signing not Miming’ with Hands in Harmony Deaf Community Choir
We worked with Hands in Harmony Deaf Community Choir on a performance and film project which combined Irish Sign Language and music. Through a series of music and performance workshops we explored the issues and the obstacles for members of Limerick’s deaf community and showcased the humour, the resilience and great warmth of this convivial choir.
Funded by the Limerick City & Council Arts Department and Creative Ireland – Made in Limerick Grant.
With thanks to our good friends at Irish Chamber Orchestra and Irish World Music Academy for their support.
Film-maker – Lucy Dawson
Director – Shirley Keane
