FAC Season 2023: Personal

An uplifting and revealing multi-language story of life as the child of Deaf parents.

★★★★ "Jodee Mundy’s Personal is a winning and inclusive tonic, consistently hilarious and informative." - Time Out

Post-Show Q&A: Following the show, there will be a Q&A session about the performance. We invite the audience to stay in their seats to take part in this short Q&A session if they would like to.

Event Description

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, she conveys her experience as the only hearing person in a Deaf family, through a captivating blend of performance, storytelling, multimedia and animation. Mundy 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. Created with a talented team of collaborators and presented in two languages via a virtual interpreter, Personal is a smart, touching and deeply personal work exploring dis/ability and how we perceive one another.

★★★★★ "Personal doesn’t discriminate. Inviting deaf and hearing audiences alike. This is a notable and important example of where access is not part of the performance, access is the performance."- ArtsHub
