Levi and Clay Anderson were raised in Milan, New Mexico, 80 miles west of Albuquerque. Believe it or not, they are the only deaf/hearing twins in the town; actually the ONLY twins in town! Levi is deaf; Clay is hearing.
Clay and Levi have a family show that will have you laughing out loud. Wether they’re talking about real-life events or made up ones, the stuff they perform seems impossible to be true. But someone has to do this, right?
When Cultures Collide – Opening Act
In the life of a DeafBlind person, one can imagine that cultures could quite literally collide! Come enjoy the hilarious life stories of Rene Pellerin. Rene will explore the transition from Deaf to DeafBlind and the levity that can surround learning moments for hearing, Deaf and DeafBlind alike. Many of Rene’s stories will ring true to the interpreter’s experience, both Deaf and hearing. Rene’s “punch lines” have been creatively characterized by cartoons developed by a local deaf artist.
Rene Pellerin is a natural entertainer. He was born in Quebec, moving to Vermont at the age of five. As a deaf child of a French speaking family, he had no choice but to hone his gesture skills to survive. His subsequent education at Austine School for the Deaf and Gallaudet University gave him language and audience to develop that innate storyteller. With the progression of Usher Syndrome, his routine gelled to become “Rene The Unstoppable”, a glimpse into the DeafBlind experience. His broad repertoire seeks to provide learning through laughter. Rene will perform “When Cultures Collide”, stories exemplifying the convergence of the DeafBlind, Deaf and interpreter worlds. Rene’s stories culminate with a deaf artist’s depiction of the event.
