Our Endless Night video has now been beautifully interpreted by @bkazenmaddox for our deaf and hard of hearing audiences. Please join us as we revisit this impactful video with a new look on how ASL not only makes art more accessible but how it is a visual art form in of itself that can work in tandem with another form of art to make a blend of two worlds come together.

Julie Taymor has scored a number of firsts. She was the first woman to win a Tony award for Best Direction of a Musical, The Lion King, which has earned more money than any entertainment title in box office history. Taymor is also known for her magical use of puppets and masks. Her latest project is a movie called The Glorias about Gloria Steinem. She’s hoping that the life story of one of the world’s most famous feminists will inspire people in these challenging times. Julie Taymor talks to me about her dreams, her fears and her passions.
