When: 5 October 2016
Te Papa Audio Described Tour: 3.30pm – 5pm
Circa Theatre Touch Tour: 5.45pm
Audio Described Performance: 6.30pm
Circa Theatre aims to make our theatre accessible for everyone, and part of that mandate is providing audio described performances. Audio description is the method of describing the non-verbal action in a play into headsets worn by blind and visually impaired audience members, so that they can have as complete a theatre experience as possible.
Te Papa and Circa have joined forces to bring you 2 audio described events on the same day! First up is an audio described tour from 3.30 to 5pm at Te Papa. This will be followed by a touch tour at 5.45pm at Circa Theatre and the audio described performance starts at 6.30pm of Last Legs.
Last Legs is set in an upmarket retirement community, the Cambridge, with a cast of recognisably funny and fallible Kiwi characters. Outside of happy hour, bridge and mah-jong, our well-to-do seniors indulge in greed, jealousy, love and lust… not to mention their share of gossip, backstabbing and scandal!
For more details about the audio described tour at Te Papa, contact Georgia Latief at Access@circa.co.nz
