About Video Resources
Follow the links on the left to find video clips of sign language poetry and folklore being performed. There are collections of performances by five individual poets - Paul Scott, Johanna Mesch, Richard Carter, John Wilson and Donna Williams - as well as a section on collaborative performances, where you can see how interactive some sign language poetry and folklore can be. There are also focus pages based around two specific concepts - 'Home' and 'Time' - where you can watch and compare several different interpretations by different performers of the same stimulus.
Further examples of sign language poetry - individual, collaborative, and contrasting - can be found on the Sign Language Poetry Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/signmetaphor/videos. All the videos on this channel were created as part of the University of Bristol's Sign Language Poetry Anthology project, which aimed to study metaphor in sign language poetry.
