Audio Description & Touch Tours
AUDIO DESCRIBED PERFORMANCE
SATURDAY 17th September – 3pm Matinee
Audio Description: Blue Teapot is delighted to have audio describer Mo Harte facilitate the audio description during the Saturday matinee. Audio Description is a live verbal commentary providing information on the visual elements of a production as it unfolds, from sets, props and costumes to actors’ facial expressions and movements across the stage. The description is delivered via an individual headset during the quieter moments of a performance and therefore only gives essential information that a blind or visually impaired person might miss.
With thanks to Professor Eilionóir Flynn, Centre for Disability Law and Policy, University of Galway and Arts & Disability Ireland

It enables those patrons a better theatre going experience and helps contextualise the stage and Charlene Kelly’s play.
A Touch Tour is not only for visually impaired patrons but can also be beneficial for those who process differently. It is a tactile exploration of the geography of a theatre space, the stage, selected props, costumes and furniture.
