This note invites input about what styles of dance and live describing you are interested in.
First, we would like to introduce our group. The InterdepenDance Collective is passionate about collective access and growing connections among communities.
We are organizing inclusive dance workshops and events with live describing. Because describing dance is different than theatre audio description, it’s a learning curve for us. Below are three questions we want to ask local communities:
- When attending dance performances, what styles of dance are you most interested in? (perhaps list 3 or 4 styles)
- What approaches to dance describing do you think might appeal to you most as an audience member: metaphor, technical narration of physical actions, option of tactile describing, storytelling, soundscapes, layering different styles, all of the above?
- As a participant in a dance workshop, what styles of dance description do you think you would be most interested in: metaphor, technical narration of physical actions, option of tactile describing, storytelling, soundscapes, all of the above?
The InterdepenDance Collective is excited to connect with more people interested in described dance. If you have any questions or would like to connect, contact Joanne.
