Deaf Interpreted Performance of Obaaberima in ASL!

TRANSCRIPT: Obaaberima – Deaf Interpreted Show in ASL at Buddies in Bad Times, December 1st 2018

“Theatrical magic on stage”
— Positive Lite

About the show: Imprisoned in Canada for committing a violent crime, a young man from Ghana tells his cellmates a story on the eve of his release. Although there is great risk in sharing his tale, he must tell it to be truly free. Through storytelling, dance, and live music, Obaaberima chronicles a young African-Canadian’s journey across continents, genders, races, and sexualities.

Winner of the 2013 Dora Award for Outstanding Production, Obaaberima has played on stages across the country, garnering rave reviews from coast to coast. Our 40th anniversary season sees Obaaberima’s long-awaited return to the Buddies stage.
