Audio description is a live commentary interspersed with the actors' dialogue. This is relayed via a headset.
The National Theatre provides a number of British Sign Language interpreted performances throughout the year.
Captioned performances have text on screens so that deaf and hard of hearing, or anyone that would like to read along, can also enjoy the performance.
These performances allow for noise and movement in the auditorium and re-entry for patrons who may need time away from the performance.
Dementia-friendly performances are tailored to suit the needs of people living with Dementia. There is a relaxed auditorium environment, and adjustments are made to the production in order to make a welcoming experience.
Technical changes are made to the production, such as adjustments to light and sound effects, for those with sensory sensitivities. These performances also allow for noise and movement in the auditorium, a chill-out space for patrons who may need time away from the performance, and re-entry when needed.
