Visual Impairment in Dance

Visual Impairment in Dance is a workshop that incorporates accessibility tools like Audio Description, Way-finding and Dance Through Touch to make visual content in performance accessible to people with visual impairments.

As a choreographer with visual impairment, I cannot determine distance and volume. In my work I use these tools to create, inform and preserve the performance.
