Difference

Relaxed and accessible dance theatre for all Landesbühnen Sachsen/ Wagner Moreira

Premiere Tanz Performance Audiodeskription 2021/22

Our utopia of a society in which everyone is allowed to be who they are is constantly interrupted by everyday life. Wagner Moreira’s production “Difference” explores with the dance company of the Landesbühnen Sachsen and mixed-abled experts what differences can trigger and how affiliations are created. In a novel concept of Relaxed Performances combined with Sensorial Adapted Performances, the aim is nothing less than a dance performance that is as accessible as possible for everyone. Different choreographies are created in several rooms, giving the audience a lot of freedom in a relaxed atmosphere. Particularly suitable for people with disabilities or special needs.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Co-production Landesbühnen Sachsen and HELLERAU-European Centre for the Arts. Supported by the Federal Cultural Foundation.

 

At Difference, events take place in different rooms. These are all 20 minutes long and repeat three times. In between there is a break of 8 minutes before the next run begins.

Hearing and Feeling: For blind and visually impaired people, audio description is also integrated. Rolled turf serves as a haptic guidance system from one event space to the next.

Seeing and feeling: Each room is supported by visual impressions (visuals) and for hearing-impaired people the essential information is accessible in German sign language. Individual vibrating seats reproduce the music haptically.

Own needs: There are no loud, startling noises in the events. Complete darkness is avoided. There are seating and reclining possibilities in the rooms, these are partly covered with rolled turf. Loud and spontaneous expressions are welcome. It is possible to leave and enter the rooms at any time. There is also a quiet room.

The performances are accompanied the whole time by helping staff. German sign language is also available.
