Join Quiplash to explore what it means to integrate audio description into performance, queerly. The workshop takes place over two relaxed half-day sessions (with breaks) at the Festsaal of Sophiensæle. If you are completely new to audio description, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Quiplash will start with a whistle stop tour through disability awareness and disability justice, then they will talk through different methods of audio description including their own methodology, queer AD. Finally, they will give you ample space to start exploring how to make audio description a creative tool that is integral to your work. This session will be practical, so please come with a willingness to move, play and try new things.

Max. number of participants: 30
For half of the places, disabled and Deaf artists will be prioritized.

Quiplash is a queer, disability led consulting and performance project headed by actual queer crip married couple Al and Amelia Lander-Cavallo. Quiplash has two strands. They have a creative performance and art branch, making accessible performances that platform queer disabled creatives. They also consult and train other industry professionals on accessibility, disability awareness and disability justice. In both strands, they work from an access first perspective meaning that accessibility is their highest priority and is at the forefront of how they work. This perspective informs their creative practice and overall principles. Operating at the intersections of queerness and disability, they ultimately believe that making truly accessible work is a radical and creative act that can enrich artistic work and create equity and inclusion for d/Deaf disabled and neurodivergent individuals across the LGBTQQIA+ spectrum.
