ASLI West Midlands are delighted to welcome Jacqui Beckford to our region to deliver “Is BSL interpreted Theatre Still Relevant?”
Jacqui has had a varied career, entering the profession in the early 1990’s simultaneously via Graeae Theatre Company and the City Literary Institute as a CSW for students in FE and HE. Not only has she supported deaf artists in the theatre, performance and arts domain, but is a prolific performance interpreter. She also worked as an In-Vision interpreter for 11 years at the BBC, later to become Red Bee Media. Jacqui has struck a good balance with her other mainstay work to date, interpreting for CAMHS and deaf adult mental health services.
Theatre and performance interpreting is not for the faint hearted. This workshop should leave you feeling like you can, for the first time, dip your toes into the theatre and performance world.
The day runs 10:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday 15th Jan 2022 in the Hexagon Theatre at Midlands Art Centre (MAC), Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham, B12 9QH.
MAC is served by a large car park which costs £3.90 all day; it is also served by bus numbers 1, 35, 45, 47, x61 and 63 and is on the Number 5 Cycle Route, with ample bike parking, including West Midlands Cycle Hire docking.
Lunch will not be provided, but KILN Cafe is right next to the theatre, serving a selection of hot and cold food and drink throughout the day, and there is an Aldi supermarket just across the car park.
The training will be delivered in English; please let us know if you have any access requirements – email@example.com
