Preparing the stage

Audio Description for the theatre: preparing the stage

This innovative research into theatre audio description (AD) for the blind and visually impaired (BVIP), set up in collaboration with 3 major Flemish theatres, identifies the challenges of AD for postdrama, and investigates their applicability to other genres & national contexts, laying solid foundations for follow-up PhD research on a European level, and contributing to the development of strategies to improve the BVIP’s theatrical experience. The project is supervised by Aline Remael and Luc Van Den Dries (University of Antwerp). The main researcher is PhD candidate Hanne Roofthooft.
