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. 

Let us know if you feel like coming and if you have any needs for a barrier-free journey or if you have questions.

We would be very happy if you join us.
In order to create the safest atmosphere as possible for everyone, we can ventilate as much as we want and please do a corona test before you come (even if you are vaccinated).

DE Mit „Triangle“ vervollständigt der in Hamburg lebende, malaysische Tanzschaffende Raymond Liew Jin Pin seine Trilogie „ CONTINUE“. Seit 2018 arbeiten er und sein Team an drei genreübergreifenden Tanzstücken, die sich mit wiederholenden Mustern und eingetretenen Pfaden in Natur und Menschsein beschäftigen.
    Das erste StĂĽck „Tongue“ begibt sich in eine tänzerische Abstraktion alltäglicher Kommunikation, während die zweite Arbeit „Touch“ die missverständliche Direktheit von BerĂĽhrung untersucht. Der letzte Teil „Triangle“ versucht zu verstehen, wie (soziale) Zugehörigkeit und Abhängigkeiten entstehen und entwirft eine mediale Auseinandersetzung des Hierseins und Dortseins mit physischen, virtuellen und spirituellen Körpern.
Mit der Premiere am 26. November 2021 werden erstmals alle drei StĂĽcke im neuen STUDIO Hammer Deich als eine choreographische Installation zu sehen sein.

ENG With “Triangle“, the Hamburg based, Malaysian dance maker Raymond Liew Jin Pin completes his trilogy “CONTINUE”. Since 2018, he and his team have been working on three cross-genre dance pieces that explore repetitive patterns and well-worn paths in nature and humanity.
    The first piece “Tongue” ventures into a dance abstraction of everyday communication, while the second work “Touch” explores the easily misunderstood directness of touch. The last part, “Triangle”, attempts to understand how (social) belonging and dependencies arise and designs a media examination of being here and being there with physical, virtual and spiritual bodies.
With the premiere of this part on 25 November 2021, all three pieces will now be seen for the first time as a choreographic installation at the new STUDIO Hammer Deich.
