'“It was only when Jodee was five years old and lost at Kmart that she realised her whole family were Deaf.

'Part performance, part multimedia and live art, Jodee Mundy’s ground-breaking solo performance explores her personal experience as the only hearing person in a Deaf family.

'Portrayed through the eyes of a child, Jodee does not see any ‘disability’; only the love and protection of her family. Despite this, she often witnessed a bittersweet ignorance from many towards her family.

'Innovatively presented in the form of two languages, Jodee simultaneously translates herself using English and Auslan through the use of a virtual interpreter and captioning.

'A deeply touching story, Personal explores dis/ability and how we perceive one another. It ultimately breaks down barriers and creates a greater understanding of signed and spoken language by highlighting how humans can communicate in multiple ways.'
