Deaf Choir


It is an Art film, directed by Ian Skedd (hearing).

Who were in the Choir:

Kevin Ettinger
Denise Read
Spring Parks
Alma Blackburn
Steve Niven
Jordan Sangalang
Suzanne Dodd
Julie Lampitt
Jil Thompson
Karen Foot
and a youth.

12 people total. It was filmed last February for two straight days.

The intention of Ian Skedd’s art interpretation is the ‘movement’ without sounds. His desire for people who observe his artwork is to interpret what it means to them and what movements, emotions, facial expressions, the overall art “the Choir” interpret.

It is open to public until June 27 at Western Front at 303 East 8th Avenue, Vancouver. (near Broadway and Main St).
