The Transformations Project


By Hodan Youssouf / Joe Jack & John

Masque is a video creation by Hodan Youssouf, commissioned by Montreal company Joe Jack & John. Inspired by past explorations around the concept of “deaf music”, defined in the research and creation project Nos mains qui vibrent led by Véro Leduc, Hodan continues to “deconstruct the concept of accessibility” with this new work by asking: “what if it was hearing people who had access to signed music?”

Joe Jack & John creates and produces its work in Tiohtià:ke, on unceded territory of the Kanien'kehá: ka.

Commissioned by Joe Jack et John. Written, directed and performed by Hodan Youssouf. Video artist and editing: Sera Kassab. Filming: Brandon Hepworth. QSL interpretation: Nadia Canuel
