About

Urban Jazz Dance Company

Returning after their LDIF18 debut, Urban Jazz Dance Company will present a mixed bill of work exploring issues affecting the international Deaf community.

The company interweave American sign language with urban jazz rhythms to create thought-provoking performances that capture the imagination.

Deaf's IMPRISONED explores what it means to be living in a "prison within a prison" as a D/deaf person in the criminal justice system. The evening will explore the tension between Deaf utopia and Deaf diaspora.

The company, featuring Deaf and hearing dancers, is led by award-winning African-American Deaf choreographer, Antoine Hunter, who has been featured in DeafLife Magazine, Dance Spirit Magazine and has been featured on CCN's The Great Big Story. Antoine will be joined by Zahna Simon, the company's assistant director; together they are the driving force behind Bay Area International Deaf Dance Festival.
