*the script was written by Max Greyson as part of an artistic research project at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp on developing artistically integrated audio description. 


"Gravity (and other attractions)" is a contemporary dance theatre duet performed by a deaf (Tiki) and a hearing (Lolo) dancer. They will always be there, even if at times you don’t see or hear them. The stage is all white. Two white cubes sit closely together at the far end. The setup is pure and spotless. It forms the background for minimalistic images that always hold a close connection to the text. 


A poetic English audio description, which is artistically integrated into the performance, builds the creative base of this piece. The descriptive language is the inspiration, the verbal translation and the spoken text of the performance. For those who don’t have access to one or more of the artistic elements in this performance or who can’t fully perceive them, all the other artistic elements create perceptive bridges. They all tell the same story - in their own way.


The performance has been developed by a creative team consisting of members with and without disabilities. Accessibility has been an integral part of the creative process. "Gravity (and other attractions)" uses innovative methods of accessibility as a core of the performance. The work is mainly accessible through poetic audio description. This innovative approach integrates descriptive language into the play without specifically targeting a visually impaired audience. "Gravity" also features other languages and art forms, such as international sign language and visual vernacular. Touch tours are available.
