A Christmas treat for al our readers Nadia Nadarajah signs ‘Silent Night’.
Watching Nadia signing Silent Night revealed so many character roles descriptively as there are in the story. Nadia becomes the narrator; she naturally shifts seamlessly from one character to another, be it Mary, Jesus, Angels, Shepherd or the Three Kings. The viewer is teleported to a specified location within her signing space such as the manger, heaven, and the desert.
Her signing reflects the music score and the gentleness of the story shines out. There is hardly any lip-patterns and fingerspelling but strong use of signs and symbols such as stars, shepherd’s crook, angel’s wings, singing alleluia and the way it is carried out.
