How accessible is mainstream theatre?. SPIT research phase three : An investigation into the reasons for Non-Attendance by Deaf People at mainstream theatre / Research carried out and report written by Deafworks ; Managed by Arts Marketing Warwickshire ; Commissioned by SPIT

Contributor(s): Publication details: Warwick (UK) : Deafworks, 1996Description: 40 fSummary: This report examines why some Deaf people do not attend mainstream theatre events even though sign language interpreted performances are regularly available in many parts of the country. It is part of the on-going research initiated by Signed Performances in Theatre (SPIT)'s consortium of mainstream arts organisations. Outreach: • Many Deaf people have either no understanding or negative experiences of theatre. Theatres therefore need to carry out specific outreach work simply to introduce theatre to deaf people. • Establishing workshops and plays with Deaf performers and / or hearing performers with a high standard of British Sign Language (BSL) skills in Deaf dubs (a familiar and sale setting for Deaf people) would enable Deaf people to have some experience of theatre in a familiar setting. This could include Deaf people's own productions. • Annual Deaf drama festivals may draw in Deaf people who otherwise would not go to a theatre. • Schools that have deaf children are known to welcome the idea of outreach work.
