Ways of Telling Dance

Audiodescription for contemporary dance for speakers and dance makers

How can you translate dance into language, how can you describe authentic pictures of dance?

Wiener Tanzwochen develop, together with partners in Paris, Brussels and London versions of contemporary dance performances for blind and partially impaired people in the frame of the project The Humane Body. The focus of the project is the development of audio versions, audio descriptions and related processes.

The workshop lead by Sabine Macher (Paris) in collaboration with Willie Elliott (London), two experienced audio describers, is an opportunity for participants to compose own written versions for a blind and visually impaired audience for Volmir Cordeiro's performance "The eye the mouth and the rest", which will be shown with Sabine's audio description on the last day of the workshop (31 July).

In addition the proposal also includes the participation in performances and a symposium within The Humane Body and collaboration with blind and visually impaired people.

English skills and an interest in dance are required.

The Palm of Your Hand #2  is part of the EU-Project The Humane Body.

Supported by the EU-Programme Creative Europe
