Above and BeyONd: developing and evaluating new approaches to access for Opera North
Inclusion is core to Arts Council England’s current Let’s Create Strategy and to Opera North’s ambition to build new audiences and sustain existing ones. But captioning opera performances – multi-layered performance texts including music and sung text alongside other modes of communication that include costume, set, lighting, gesture and movement – presents particular challenges in terms of what can be captioned and what is ‘lost in translation’. Building on the company’s sector-leading work on access, this project examines what can and should be captioned and explores how best to do so to support understanding and pleasure for all audiences.
The successful student will benefit from extensive access to Opera North’s practice and process and to state-of-the-art thinking on captioning/titling and developing accessible performances, with opportunities to develop, test and reflect on innovative methodologies for titling and access in dialogue with both academics and arts practitioners and in ‘real world’ performance contexts.

Deadline for expressions of interest: 20th February 2023.
