ASL INTERPRETED PERFORMANCES
Soulpepper is pleased to offer live ASL interpretation for select performances as part of our 2018-19 season.
Relaxed performances are intended specifically to be sensitive to and welcoming of patrons who may benefit from a more relaxed environment, including, but not limited to, those with autistic spectrum conditions, sensory and communication disorders, or learning disabled people. There is a more casual-than-usual approach to front-of-house etiquette and we ask other audience members to be aware of people's needs to move or make involuntary noise. The artistic excellence of the production and director’s vision remain unchanged.
Indicated performances will feature a less restrictive audience environment and experience, including, but not limited to, exit and re-entry to the theatre space, house lights remaining at a suitable level, adjusting the intensity of light and sound cues, allowing snacks into the theatre space, a quiet room being available for patrons, and an introduction of cast members prior to the performance.
UPCOMING RELAXED PERFORMANCES
