RELAXED PERFORMANCE For TENNIS, we're harnessing the "fourth wall" again: Make yourselves comfortable on the chairs, cushions and mattresses and rest assured that the butterballs won't harm you. You definitely don't have to join in, you can just be there. It won't be very dark and it won't be very loud. Nevertheless, we are on a tennis court and this space is not equally comfortable for everyone. So if it gets too stressful, you can either complain to the referee or leave the room during the show. If you need a moment's peace and quiet, you can retreat to the foyer and of course you are very welcome to come back.
The play lasts 60 to 70 minutes without an intermission. German spoken language, German sign language, English subtitles and audio description will be used. The dance performance gives different linguistic, visual and auditory access. There is a creative-artistic approach to accessibility. Both audio description and German Sign Language are part of the production. In several scenes, video sequences are projected onto a screen in the right-hand corner of the room. In the first scene, the screen shows a wiggling image of a trawl net being dragged across the floor. In the middle of the performance, an image noise is projected onto the screen for several seconds. In one scene, a very brightly lit object is dragged across the floor for a while. On stage, balls fly from right to left in several scenes. Both balls and the glowing object come very close to visitors in the front row at times.
There is an audio description in German for all performances, preceded by a haptic tour for blind and visually impaired people. The haptic tour begins 30 minutes before the performance. The meeting point is next to the bar in the canteen on the ground floor of the Sophiensaele. Ticket reservations are accepted by Hannah Aldinger at email@example.com or by calling 030 278900 35.
