Claire Cunningham Jess Curtis lead a free* workshop for dance and theater artists that explores the creative potential of audio description for movement-based performance. Audio description is a live or recorded narration of visual cues most often employed by audience members with vision impairments. Along with Victor Cole, a leading Chicago-area audio describer, Cunningham and Curtis explore the interplay between language and movement as a rich research practice physically, aesthetically, and intellectually.
Participants should be prepared to move through activities accessible to people of diverse physicalities.
