|The paper considers the artistic interpreting of music into Czech sign language and focuses on its importance for the cultural life of deaf people. People with hearing impairment have only limited options of perceiving cultural events such as theatre performances, musical and vocal concerts. Using the artistic interpreting brings down this barrier and provides the deaf with the same kind of experience as the hearing people. Furthermore, the hearing audience, owing to the artistic interpretation, receives access to this very specific way of communication which is more visual in character and is closely connected with expression via motion. Any visitors of the work demonstration will have a chance to get to know the activities of the Hands Dance group, which has been dealing with the topic of artistic interpreting for the past five years. An explanation will be provided for the character and individual types of artistic interpreting of music, as well as an introduction to the method of working with texts and the song‘s rhythm and various approaches to interpreting music. The presentation will be supported by real examples.The artistic interpreting into sign language is primarily aimed at people with hearing impairment. That is why the input of deaf people is a vital element in the translation process, as well as interpreting itself. Involvement of deaf artists will be one of the key points of this topic. Artistic interpreting is a considerably young field in which only a limited number of individuals work, yet it is still steadily developing. Its benefit for better social inclusion of persons with hearing impairment is indisputable, as well is its help with the overall growth of cultural events by adding the socially integrative aspect.
