Telephone Film is a disability arts film project bringing awareness to audio description for dance, an art form that allows blind and visually impaired people to be fully included in the joy of artistic expression. Telephone showcases audio description as an art form in its own right, while also providing an immersive sensory experience for audience members of all sight levels. trailer link.
The screendance documentary is the first of its kind, featuring diverse disabled and non-disabled artists who have come together to prove that: dance is visceral, not merely visual.
Join us at Theater for the New City to experience the forty-five minute film, followed by a talkback with the co-directors, Dark Room Ballet Founder Krishna Wasburn (who will join virtually) and choreographer/filmmaker Heather Shaw. Both co-directors will answer your questions and share about the filmmaking process, the future of anti-ableism in the arts, and more!
