WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT
THEATRE & DISABILITIES
From disability-led theatre companies to relaxed performances; over the last years, the UK has made leaps of progression in including performers and audiences with disabilities. How can British performers and experts inspire the Dutch theatre world to take action?
What does it take for you to feel included in the theatre?
We invite theatre lovers and professionals of all abilities to join us during a theatrical symposium. With a short play, a keynote speech and a panel of experts we discuss what Dutch theatres can do to level up their accessibility.
Join in person or via livestream. Click here for more about the accessibility of the event.
Louder is Not Always Clearer by Jonny Cotsen
30 OCT-1 NOV | Koninklijke Schouwburg
How do you truly connect? This question lies at the core Louder is Not Always Clearer; a show about about growing up deaf in a hearing world. A show for both deaf and hearing audiences.
From the UK, Jonny Cotsen brings us an honest and unapologetic piece of theatre, including moments which turn the tables on hearing audience members in terms of exclusion; something needed in the forefront of society.
HNTOnbeperkt offers inclusive performances, mostly in Dutch, but this must-see performance is ‘language no problem’ and includes audio description. Dance meets opera meets climate change and dystopia: Nicole Beutler plays by her own rules.
Feeling, hearing, imagining Escher
In a series of special openings, the Escher museum opens its doors for those who are blind and visually impaired. Visitors can get to know the artworks in an interactive way and they form an image based on feeling, hearing and imagining.
