"Rich body movements are as good as spoken language"
——NI Yingjie, Sign Language Poetry Performer
Have you experienced exclusion?
Sometimes people aren't familiar with ways of communication, or they don't understand. Through sign language poetry I want to tell everyone that we, deaf people, still have a beautiful perception of the world. Rich body movements are as good as spoken language.
Which role do you think poetry can play in promoting inclusion?
Sign language poetry allows everyone to understand the world through seeing; it allows you to deeply love the world, without borders.
What does social inclusion mean to you?
Social inclusion means that we need to pay attention to weaker groups. They are not necessarily people with disabilities, but minority groups who are relatively unknown.
Sign Language as one way of storytelling has been passed down from generation to generation. Until the advent of video technology in the 1970s, a critical period for sign language, the performance pattern has become more and more popular.
On November 9, Shen Huan, Pu Wenyuan, and Ni Yingjie will create body verses, use movement to express mysterious metaphor and beautiful symbols in HOW Art Museum. The performance is about combatting prejudice and exclusion, building new bridges between different communities.
