By josetteBM, 13th March 2015

Josette Bushell-Mingo, artistic director of Swedish Silent Theatre, receives the National Actors Cultural Award for 2015. Jury’s motivation:
“Josette Bushell-Mingo makes both classic and contemporary performances accessible to people with sign language as their first language. She has done Visukalen – a musical for the deaf, as a proof that even the deaf and hearing impaired people experience music.” … “By speaking Swedish and English mixed with sign language and sometimes music and song, she gets everyone to understand and feel important.”
