What is Auslan Interpretation?

Auslan is the Australian Sign Language used by people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. During an Auslan Interpreted performance, one or two interpreters are positioned side-stage, relaying the dialogue spoken by the actors, into sign language, in real time. Seating is allocated, so patrons who have advised us that they will be using the Auslan service, will be allocated to the best seats in which to view the interpreter.  This position may change depending on each production.

Audio Description Service

   

Courtesy of Vision Australia and QPAC, Queensland Theatre is proud to offer Audio Description services for five of our productions in the 2018 Season.

Bookings for the Audio Described performances are through qtix Group Sales – ph: (07) 3840 7466 or groups@qtix.com.au 

When booking your tickets, tell the operator you would like to use the audio description service that day. Audio Description is a free service. Headsets and instructions are available from the Cloakroom.

What is Audio Description?

This service allows blind and vision impaired people to enjoy our shows by having trained describers capture in live narration – without interrupting the dialogue on stage - the action, costumes, sets, transitions, gestures, facial expressions and lighting or special effects in a performance. This is transmitted via a discreet headset/earpiece worn by the client in the auditorium. Imagine your own personal "director’s commentary” but only when there is a pause in the dialogue.
