Deaf and HoH Accessibility

The Fringe is very excited to get more involved with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. We are working to improve our accessibility and welcome any feedback!

VOLUNTEERING:

If you are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and would like to volunteer with us, we have positions available for you! Please click here for more information on how to sign up. If you are an ASL Interpreter and would like to volunteer your skills to interpret for Deaf or Hard of Hearing volunteers, please contact us!

INTERPRETED PERFORMANCES

Rocko and Nakota: Tales from the Land will be ASL Interpreted on Saturday, September 8 at 3:00pm at Waterfront Theatre.

 

Awkward Hug will be ASL Interpreted on Sunday, September 9 at 1:45pm at The Cultch.

Angels & Aliens will be ASL Interpreted on Saturday, September 15 at 6:30pm at Studio 1398.

Unfortunately, the ASL Interpreter has had to cancel the interpretation for Angles & Aliens. If you purchased tickets and now cannot see the show due to the lack on interpretation, please connect with the Box Office at boxoffice[at]vancouverfringe[dot]com.

RESERVED SEATING:

If you are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and require priority seating to view any performance, please let our Front of House volunteers know. The house opens 15 minutes before show time and you will be granted priority access to the venue.

“FRIENDLY” SHOWS:

The artists have self-reported whether they consider their shows “Deaf and Hard of Hearing Friendly,” which suggests their meaning and enjoyment does not depend on sound elements. We invited the artists to provide notes about the accessibility of their show, which are included below. For full show descriptions and tickets, click the show title.

These shows are largely non-verbal and may also be appropriate for patrons with English as a second language.

THE CRYSTALLINE CABARET PRESENTS: HOUSE NOCTURNAE
Havana Theatre

House Nocturnae is a variety show in revue format that features primarily movement-based practices. There is a very loose storyline and the character dynamics and relationships are conveyed with movement, physical acting, and costume/aesthetic. There is music throughout the show but the acts are not literal interpretations of the songs. However, there is one number in the show that features a vocalist whose act is singing live.

Naughty / Intimate / LGBTQ+ / 60 minutes / 18+ / Sexual Content / Nudity
