VISUAL IMPAIRMENT IN DANCE

Image Description: Battery Dance Company members Mira Cook, Sarah Housepian, Vivake Khamsingsavath, Bethany Mitchell, Razvan Stoian, Hussein Smko and Jillian Linkowski explore movement and description to their movement inside a square marked on the floor with blue masking tape.

In this workshop we explore accessibility tools such as Audio Description, Way-finding, Tactile Design and Dance Through Touch to make visual content accessible to people with visual impairments.

Performers learn to incorporate these tools into the creative process and their potential as an art form.
