Personal

Date: 17 Apr 2018

It wasn’t until Jodee Mundy was five years old and lost at Kmart that she realised the rest of her family was Deaf.

She didn’t see ‘disability’ – only the love and protection of those closest to her.

In Personal, Jodee shares her experience as the only hearing person in a Deaf family, through a captivating blend of performance, storytelling, multimedia and animation. She delves into the contradictions of inhabiting two worlds: living in a Deaf family, where using sign language is natural; and living in a society that sees only the family’s disability with voyeuristic curiosity.

The role children of Deaf adults play in paving the way for their family – as interpreter, authority, conduit – is central to this very intimate story. Presented in English and Auslan, Personal is a smart, touching and deeply personal work exploring dis/ability and how we perceive one another.

Personal is part of the Sydney Opera House UnWrapped program.
