They will present visual/gesticular communication, background knowledge on the Deaf community and possibilities of building communication and first words of ÖGS. Pam Eden will shed light on her work with ÖGS on stage and relate her artistic collaborations in the field of performance, challenges, gains, and experiences. Pam Eden contributes to Nora Jacobs’s performance HOW DO YOU with a live interpretation into ÖGS.

Three sparrows against a background of fir branches. In the foreground a sparrow is flying, its bright wings are spread, it seems to be looking directly into the camera. The other sparrows are sitting on branches in the background. Light falls through the branches and bathes the scene in warm green. An idyllic atmosphere that radiates a sense of optimism.

Pam Eden (she/her) lives in Vienna and Lower Austria and works with people of various abilities and impairments in various social areas. Her focus is on the field of deafness since she has a hearing impairment herself and is fluent in Austrian Sign Language (ÖGS). Her passions are the theatre, acting, and music. Pam Eden offers ÖGS interpretation (with or without a performance) to build bridges between areas of hearing and hearing impairments. She appeared as an interpreter for two productions at the Schäxpir theatre festival – Monster and Zack Prack – and also works as an  interpreter for Nora Jacobs’s performance HOW DO YOU

Barbara Schuster (she/her) grew up in South Tyrol and has lived in Vienna for 24 years. In 2004, she led the first bilingual-bimodal playgroups to promote Austrian Sign Language (ÖGS) in children and in 2006, as deaf president, founded the kinderhände association with this concept as a unique offer for families in Austria. Today, she is primarily dedicated to the further training of adults as a lecturer in ÖGS and AAC with sign language and loves her work with the "flying hands". She also works as a sign language teacher at the University of Vienna and is also active as a graphic designer and illustrator.

Angelika Bolnberger (she/her) is from Vienna and has been working in the social sector for many years with great passion and commitment. With her enthusiasm for Austrian sign language and her training as an elementary teacher, she found her way to the kinderhände association, which she now runs together with Barbara Schuster. Equal opportunities education and a communicative upbringing for children are particularly close to her heart. Today, she leads the bilingual-bimodal playgroups at kinderhände, passes on her knowledge to teachers and works as an interpreter for Austrian sign language and German. In her free time, she enjoys going to the theater and improvising plays.
