Opening Performance

ISM II is another episode of the original ISM created by the VOCA Ensemble. The new VOCA Ensemble of Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HoH) BIPOC individuals will share their true stories and experiences in American Sign Language (ASL) when exposed to societal “isms”, discriminatory practices, and oppression. As a result of social change, they express hope and freedom through Deaf Hip Hop culture: music, dance, poetry, multimedia, and storytelling. The Deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing audiences will simultaneously have access to ASL and Spoken English (voice performed).
