One of the things we’ve learned at TerpTheatre – folks want to know a little more about how we do our work, and the process ‘behind the scenes.’ This blog is inspired by some short videos we produced recently, designed to give a peek into how a show evolves from the rehearsal process to the actual performance on stage.
We hope to use this blog space to add more information about the rehearsal process. We’ll create vBlogs in ASL to keep you informed of our progress as we work with local theatres to bring you shadow-interpreted performances.
Danny McDougall, PhD, CSC — “Dr. Danny” — owns and manages TerpTheatre. Since 1986, he has interpreted in hundreds of plays, musicals and other performances on stage – most in the shadowed style. He teaches and lectures on the theory and practice of theatre interpreting. Danny is the chair of Sign Language Studies at Madonna University, and holds a PhD in Translation and Interpretation from Heriot-Watt University – where his dissertation explored the relationship between space and meaning during interpreted theatre performances.
