Fuel Theatre promote their accessible programme

Wednesday 20 March

"Here at Fuel, we want to make work for everyone, and we have been working hard to make work for audiences with accessibility requirements. We’ve produced British Sign Language interpreted performances of productions, we’ve made large print versions of our season brochures and subtitled our very first film, Kursk, for BBC’s The Space.

In 2012 we made our first foray into making work accessible for blind or vision impaired audiences with an Audio Described performance of Sound & Fury’s Going Dark at the Young Vic in London, with an accompanying Touch Tour of the set and performance space.

In our January-June 2013 season we’re working with Fevered Sleep to make a captioned show and an audio described show for their installation and performance Above Me The Wide Blue Sky at the Young Vic in March, and with Will Adamsdale to make a sign interpreted show and captioned show for his new show The Victorian in the Wall at the Royal Court.

We want to make the shows as enriching an experience for a disabled audience member as it is for a hearing or sighted audience member and we want to create accessible routes in that aren’t just bolt-ons to the show, but are woven in and in sympathy with the style of the entire piece."
