Can you guess the hidden meaning behind this poster art?
Check out the video below for an explanation by Deaf West Theatre's artistic director DJ Kurs:
The new poster features an image of a boy and a girl embracing, with one of each of their arms crossed in an x-shape. In American Sign Language, this is the sign for "love."
Artistic director Kurs said, "Sign language is not mere gesture -- it is a fully formed language with its own rules. Here it is an integral part of the show. We sought to include this spirit in the poster."
On the decision to use the word "love" in the poster, Kurs said, "This is very special because two people in love are uniting to make a single sign that reflects their state of emotion."
