What is Auslan interpretation?
During an Auslan interpreted performance, an interpreter stands in a clearly visible location to the audience and interprets the spoken word and sound effects for D/deaf patrons who use Auslan. The following Adelaide Festival events are Auslan interpreted.

What is Audio Description?

An Audio Describer delivers a live commentary via a personal headset providing information on the visual elements of a performance as it unfolds.

Please request headsets when booking to ensure availability. Headsets can be collected in foyers of each venue near box office – from one hour prior to show time.

Wheelchair access
You may need to book specific wheelchair accessible seats depending on the venue. Please see the access notes on the event page and ensure you book accordingly.
