How do you translate Beyoncé into sign language?
This is the kind of quandary that Scott Baker deals with as an ASL interpreter. He says, when he was working at a Beyoncé concert in Nashville, it was a lot about interpreting her visual expression as much as her lyrics. But really, any performance is difficult to translate — especially Shakespeare. He talked to WPLN's Emily Siner in our live series and podcast Movers & Thinkers about interpreting one mind-bending scene.
