Queering the Crip, Cripping the Queer: Quiplash, Sophiensæle

14. September 2022 11:00


Join Quiplash to explore what it means to integrate audio description into performance, queerly. The workshop takes place over two relaxed half-day sessions (with breaks) at the Festsaal of Sophiensæle. If you are completely new to audio description, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Quiplash will start with a whistle stop tour through disability awareness and disability justice, then they will talk through different methods of audio description including their own methodology, queer AD. Finally, they will give you ample space to start exploring how to make audio description a creative tool that is integral to your work. This session will be practical, so please come with a willingness to move, play and try new things.

The event will be held in English spoken language with translation into German sign language (DGS) and lasts 4:30 hours.

Admission: 10/20/30/40 €
