Over the last couple of years Red Earth Theatre has been working with colleagues from the University of Nottingham, to improve the immersion of captions within theatre performance.
We are now delighted to be able to premiere some of the wonderful new techniques developed as part of our Autumn / Winter 2019 tour of Soonchild.
In The Stage’s October 2019 article – click through below to read the full article – we share the wonders and possibilities of this inspiring new technology.
‘Red Earth Theatre co-artistic director Amanda Wilde said: “This research project with the University of Nottingham has encouraged us to evaluate our current access provision and to be more creative with how access is integrated into our future touring shows.
“As a small-scale touring company committed to providing access for D/deaf audiences, it has afforded us the space with our research colleagues, to be more ambitious and inventive in developing our access offer and to push the boundaries of captioning in theatre.”‘
