The next screening of the Telephone Film will be taking place VIRTUALLY via Abilities Dance Boston on Sunday, September 17th at 2 PM (Eastern Time)
“Telephone” is an activist screendance documentary celebrating emotionally rich, poetic audio description for dance, which allows blind and visually impaired people to be included fully in the joy of artistic expression.
The first of its kind, Telephone was created specifically with a visually impaired audience in mind, while facilitating an immersive sensory experience for audience members of all sight levels. Featuring diverse disabled and non-disabled artists from across the globe, the film demystifies and legitimizes audio description, not just as an access tool, but as a beautiful, rich art form in its own right.
Join us virtually over Zoom with Abilities Dance Boston to experience the forty-five minute film, followed by a talkback with the co-directors, choreographer/filmmaker Heather Shaw and Dark Room Ballet Founder Krishna Washburn.
