The Universal Drum: Workshop Performance

SIGN & SING presents a workshop performance and post-performance discussion of our work in progress, The Universal Drum. The English text of the poem is written by Deaf playwright Willy Conley, and the ASL translation is a collaboration among Conley and his students at Gallaudet University.

The English text is written by Willy Conley and the music is written by Brad Balliett.
