Experience Opportunity

Approaching Creative Captioning: From Emerging to Mid-Scale Production

Led by Alice Christina-Corrigan, this free workshop for theatre makers will explore creative captioning, it’s importance in changing the landscape of access in theatre, and will provide hands-on experience with affordable creative tools commonly accessible to artists. It will look at different styles, create examples of work and incorporate projection shadowing, with time for a Q&A at the end.

Creative captioning is an integral tool for any scale of work accessible, often aimed at Deaf and hard of hearing people, but useful to a broad range of audiences.

Alice Christina-Corrigan is a visually impaired actor, theatre maker and creative captioner based in Manchester. Her practice is focused on creatively and intuitively breaking the technological landscape of creative access in theatre by implementing new and exciting ways to approach creative access, primarily for Blind and Deaf communities. Her work incorporates dynamic sound scores, audio description language and creative captioning. Her first production, Past Life, debuted at Camden People’s Theatre and has been performed at the Barbican Centre, Bloomsbury Festival and DaDa International.
