There are words and then there is Patricia "Trix" Bruce. She can tell her life's story without uttering a syllable.
Bruce, who is deaf, will bring her one-woman show to Niagara University on Wednesday, April 11, for performances at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Attendees will have the chance to participate in a Bruce-led workshop that involves exploring special language aspects of ASL as it relates to storytelling.
The shows will take place in the Castellani Art Museum and are open to the public at no cost. Both events will be followed by a meet and greet with Bruce.
Voice interpretation will be provided.
Drawing on her background in American Sign Language and a life filled with travel and adventure, Bruce excels in hilarious true-to-life storytelling and impromptu, interactive ASL artistry. Her diverse interests in business and stage performance have paved the way for Bruce's entrepreneurial success as an instructional presenter and sought-after entertainer.
Those who plan to attend are asked to RSVP to [email protected].
Niagara University offers a full complement of courses in American Sign Language and deaf studies. The program focuses on the development of conversational sign skills, although students may progress into ASL interpreting programs, deaf education programs and more.
