The final show in Public Energy’s Market Hall season is Deafy by Edmonton actor and playwright Chris Dodd. Deafy is a poignant and humorous storytelling piece blending ASL, the spoken word and surtitles which reflects on the experience of what it is like to be a Deaf person in a hearing world and leads you on an unexpected journey of what it really means to belong. It premiered at the 2019 SummerWorks Performance Festival in Toronto to critical acclaim and confirmed Dodd’s place as an important and influential artist in Canadian theatre. Following the shows with Public Energy Deafy will have its first run in Toronto at Harbourfront’s CoMotion Festival.  Chris Dodd’s remarkable 20-year career began as the first Deaf graduate of the University of Alberta’s Drama program. He is the founder and director of SOUND OFF, Canada’s only theatre festival devoted to the Deaf performing arts, is an artistic associate with Workshop West Playwrights’ Theatre in Edmonton and was recently awarded the prestigious Guy Laliberté Prize by the Canada Council for the Arts in honour of his exceptional work in Deaf theatre.
