Making Art Accessible | Post-Performance Discussions & Equal Access Resources

Posted in Special Events '12, 2012, In The Community '12.

    After experiencing a spectacular evening of cutting-edge choreography, have you ever wished you could speak to the artists themselves and ask them, “What inspired this piece? How long was the process from concept to creation? And just how do you do that with your body?”   ADF’s post-performance discussions, following select shows throughout the season, provide you the rare opportunity to do just that. Free to ticket holders, these discussions allow you to speak directly to some of your favorite choreographers and companies, and learn more about the dances and their artistic process. Moderated by Dr. Ruth Day, Duke University professor and ADF’s Cognitive Scientist in Residence, these discussions provide a thought-provoking and intriguing addition to your evening.   The ADF is committed to providing equal access to performances for audience members of all abilities and is pleased to provide ASL sign language interpretation at each of our post-performance discussions. With this resource, our deaf and hard of hearing patrons can enjoy the Q & A and discussion opportunities and maximize their performance experience.   For a list of all scheduled post-performance discussions, and a full description of our equal access resources, please click here and scroll down the page.   Get those questions ready, and we’ll see you after the show!
