An introduction to making performance work which, in both content and form, reflects a world that is more inclusive, challenges hackneyed representations of disability, and creates new narratives, protagonists and dynamic form.
The creative and theatrical possibilities of access devices or tools - sign language interpretation, audio description, projected text or subtitles, for example - are still not being widely explored. This workshop begins to consider these as the potential means to artistic innovation and exploration, rather than an 'add on', illustrated by examples from Kaite's texts and productions within the 'mainstream' and disability arts and culture.
