This event for visually impaired patrons and their companions provides insight into Northern Ballet’s Geisha – the movements, the costumes and more.
Northern Ballet has paved the way in creating accessible opportunities for visually impaired audiences to engage with dance and we have devised our own unique programme of activities that supports our audio described performances.
We encourage visually impaired patrons and their companion to take part in a free Touch Tour Insight, which introduces elements of the production to aid in your understanding of the show. You can hear a description of the scenery, feel the props and costumes, and discover the shapes and quality of the movement from the ballet with the aid of Company dancers.
The performance will then be brought to life in your mind’s eye with a detailed description by former Northern Ballet dancer Pippa Moore, with help by VocalEyes and members of Northern Ballet, describing the movement, action and drama on stage with music played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.
