Audio-described performances

Information on audio-described performances for patrons who are blind or have low vision

QPAC offers audio-described performances for patrons who are blind or have low vision

Access Arts Inc. (Qld), Vision Australia and QPAC present Vision Australia's Audio Description Service at QPAC, with live descriptions of the visual elements to complement the theatre experience.

Trained Audio Describers provide the commentary with concise descriptions of actions, expressions and gestures. The description is transmitted via an earpiece, enabling patrons wishing to receive the audio description service to book seats in any area of the theatre (subject to availability).

Patrons can collect their headsets at their theatre’s cloakroom and need to be seated 15 minutes before the performance to receive program details together with descriptions of costumes and stage settings.
