Personal by Jodee Mundy
Personal is a smart and touching story, deeply exploring dis/ability and how we perceive one another. After a hugely successful and well received tour in June, on our last stop at Latrobe Performing Arts Centre, audiences described the show as “amazing and fantastic” and “the best show ever”.
Jodee Mundy discovered that all of her family were Deaf when she was five years old in Kmart. As the only hearing person in a Deaf family, this solo performance unpacked the concept of disability within our society through the eyes of a child.
Auslan is her first language, and English is her second. Through this work audiences were better positioned to acknowledge and appreciate the role of a Child of a Deaf adult (CODA) – as interpreter, authority, and conduit – overall sharing Jodee’s experience of duality living in two worlds.
“Never has the power of love, kindness and connection to fellow human beings felt more important in breaking the ties of social isolation.” Australian Stage
