Saint Paul College is hosting a wonderful, free get-together to watch stories told by famous Deaf performer Dack Virnig. The storytelling will begin at 6:30 pm. Tell your friends and family, as it will be a great time for ALL AGES!!!
LANGUAGE: This event is performed in American Sign Language, and there will not be any English interpreters. This will help us appreciate ASL even more by watching the stories in their original language.
About our guest... Dack Virnig has a commitment to raise awareness about Deaf culture and American Sign Language. As a fourth-generation Deaf-born man, he is well-known for his YouTube video "Mountain Dew Man." It earned him an unexpected international breakthrough and drew great attention worldwide with over 400,000 views. He has invested his time in crafting his presentation to suit various age groups and creating storyline plots to reflect the uniqueness and richness of the language itself. His top-notch performances, combined with outstanding content and a plot laden with twists and turns, make his action-thriller a treat. His commitment is to deliver more than a satisfactory experience -- a powerful impact that will blossom and enrich people's love for American Sign Language.
