Training Description

Through interactive, participatory exercises, lectures, and demonstrations in a shared setting, participants will learn how to utilize critical skills found in the Audio Description Standards and apply them to their discipline.

Using the “live” or “extemporaneous” approach developed by Margaret and Cody Pfanstiehl, participants will practice the art and technique of inserting descriptions of essential visual elements during a performance. In theatre, those moments encompass the natural pauses in theatre dialogue; in opera, during a singer’s breath and/or orchestral pauses; in dance, the physical nuances and storytelling moments during a piece of choreography.

This workshop also includes training in the preparation of pre-performance notes which serve to introduce discipline specific vocabulary, design elements, cast of characters, dancers, and/or musicians/instruments.

Schedule

Wednesday May 10th: 9am-5pm

Thursday May 11th: 9am-5pm

*Light breakfast and lunch will be provided both days.

Participants are required to complete both days.
