Searching for My Own True Voice: One Deaf Woman's Story
September 6 - September 8, 2012
KR Glickman, a Beverly resident, was born deaf. “My world is like watching a TV without any sound,” she communicates. “And the hearing world’s misunderstanding of this condition has led to airline attendants offering me Braille books,” she adds with a smile. KR can indeed see with her two different colored eyes and feels with her heart and mind. She communicates with her hands and liquid, lively facial expressions. Searching for My Own True Voice emerged from KR’s desire to share the experience of growing up in a silent world. The performance, which will be performed in American Sign Language with a voice interpreter, is a welcome mat to her world and to a fuller understanding of the deaf experience.
