FEBRUARY 20 | 19.00 PM | Premiere
FEBRUARY 21 – MARCH 06

AUDIODESCRIPTION AND TOUCH TOURS
We regularly offer audiodescriptions of selected performances to make them accessible to blind and visually impaired people. Due to the currently valid Sophiensaele Covid-19 hygiene protection concept, we do not offer Touch Tours at present. We are seeking to create alternative, digital offers though. In the audiodescription over wireless headphones the processes on stage are described. This gives people with visual impairments access to the visual elements of a performance: movement, gestures, facial expressions, stage design, costumes and props are described.

In cooperation with Berlin für Blinde/Förderband e.V. we offer a pick-up service for blind and visually impaired people from the nearby S-Bahn and subway stations Hackescher Markt and Weinmeisterstraße. To use the pick-up service, please contact us at the latest 48 hours before the performance.
