Nathan Geering is Artistic Director of Rationale Theatre Company and specialises in how hip-hop can enhance accessibility. Through the Future Venture Fund Nathan will be teaching people with visual impairment breakdance as a means of injury prevention and to improve spatial awareness. The course will run for 8 weeks and will end with participants taking part in public performances. The performance will also be audio described using the Rationale Method of Audio Description which utilises the skills of a beatboxer to give a richer soundscape to people with visual impairment.
In terms of an update with the project I am seeing if I can work with Illuminate Freedom, The Royal Opera House and The RNIB on delivering this course to some of the groups they have up and running. I will keep you posted on the progress of this as well as inform you what dates the course will start and finish once this has been agreed. Can you let me know if there is a deadline that this work has to be completed by just so I can ensure that I stick within the timeframe.
