This performance has taken place in the past

with Robert Softley Gale

A workshop examining the ways in which Birds of Paradise Theatre Company designs access into their work – from new writing through to staged productions. Creatively embedded access makes our work accessible to sight impaired, hearing impaired and other audiences while also providing artistic challenges and opportunities, enriching our creative output as a company and widening access to the arts. This is an opportunity to learn from our practice, successes and failures and explore how thinking about access can enrich your own practice.
