“Destiny, USA” by Laura Anne Harris

February 17 @ 12:00 am - February 20 @ 12:00 am EST

When Laura moved from Toronto to Syracuse, New York, she wasn’t expecting to be residing in Trump’s America.

Gaining her first job as a relay operator for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing causes her to question whether she can discover the hidden humanity of the American people. Destiny, USA weaves together three stories: Laura’s move to the US, her enlightening new job, romantically meeting her husband, and dealing with her mother’s illness in Canada while living in America. All are told through storytelling and poetry.

While this is mainly autobiographical, some details have been changed to protect the anonymity of the Deaf callers.

The performance integrates partial closed captioning and features performances from three Canadian Deaf actors: Tamyka Bullen, Natasha Bacchus, and Sage Lovell through ASL video projection.

One of the performances will incorporate live ASL interpretation, date to be announced.
