The laboratory is an open space in which methods of Audio Description can be tried out and improvised together in the studio with voice, language and body. The LAB is supposed to be a platform to talk about and to practice Audio Description, its artistic and political potentials, about artistic ways of access and all questions around it.Sighted as well as blind and visually impaired persons are invited.
Audio Description is the linguistic description of something visual and is used in various areas, e.g. in theaters, museums or film & television. It is an access tool that was developed for blind and visually impaired people, is constantly evolving and is a lot of fun 🙂
The laboratory takes place as part of our research project “Spoken Dance”. In this project we deal with artistic methodologies of audio description and their artistic potential. We also want to establish Audio Description as a practice and manifest it as a fixed structure in Theater. We hold workshops and discussions, organize panels, we research and network.In the beginning of 2022 we will publish a website, where we will present the project, give more information around the topic of Audio Description and will list a network of Audio Describers in Hamburg and beyond.
