Our first Auslan interpreted performance

Was held on Friday 16 March, in conjunction with Auslan Stage Left.   True Minds is a very wordy play, and is performed without an interval.  The play goes for 1 hour and 40 minutes.      Our interpreters on the night were Kahli & Sarah.    They did a wonderful job — keeping up with the dialogue with style and elan.

Kahli signed the men's roles, and Sarah the ladies.     Their faces were gloriously expressive, and it was easy to see, if they were signing a conversation between two girls (or boys) which character they were signing.    

The CTG is very proud to be able to bring Auslan interpreted theatre to their audiences.    It's an exciting new venture, and we look forward to many more — it's a very learning experience.  


Kahli & Sarah hard at work …

A well earned curtain call …
