Landon Krentz

Academy Artist

Landon Krentz, a Deaf performing artist from Saskatchewan, Canada, found his passion for theatre later in life when he was introduced to sign language. He quickly became a prominent figure in the Canadian arts scene, experimenting with different forms such as ASL opera, visual stories with music, and bi-lingual (ASL/ENG) plays. Krentz is recognized for his innovative approach to performance, using a unique blend of physicality, visual language, and sign language to captivate audiences of both Deaf and hearing communities. Krentz has overcome numerous obstacles to build an equal and shared theatrical experience for Deaf and hearing audiences, who are often limited to partial experiences through reliance on ASL interpretation. Despite these challenges, Krentz remains a persevering and influential force in the performing arts.
