Yorkshire Interpreter Network (YIN)

World Café Day
SATURDAY 21st APRIL 2018
LEEDS DEAF CENTRE
£30
(though likely to be cheaper
if we have good numbers)

The idea of the day is to carousel around different facilitated groups discussing certain professional or practical interpreting dilemmas through scenarios and how one would resolve these.

We want this to be an enjoyable day, to get together, socialise, share ideas and look at different perspectives whilst considering the codes of conduct and the code of ethics in a safe, supportive environment.

Finishing off with a plenary session the day will hopefully give us more insight and reflection shaping how practice moving forward both as individuals and collectively.

The day will be worth structured 6 CPD hours – the more interpreters attend the richer the experience!

Open to all registered interpreters and regulated trainee interpreters

Jane Eyre – Audio Described Performance

NORTHERN BALLET PRESENT JANE EYRE

Touch Tour Insight and Audio Described Performance
Saturday 10 March
Leeds Grand Theatre

Orphaned at a young age and cruelly treated by her Aunt, Jane Eyre is a plain but intelligent child who grows up knowing little kindness. Sent away to a charitable school, Jane later accepts a position as a Governess at Thornfield, a gentleman’s manor whose master is the dark and impassioned Mr Rochester.

In spite of their social differences, an unlikely bond grows between the pair but as their romance develops, it becomes clear that Mr Rochester has a hidden past that threatens to ruin them both.

With choreography by Cathy Marston and an original score by Philip Feeney, join us this Autumn as Northern Ballet’s brilliant dance actors bring this tale of romance, jealousy and dark secrets to life.

Our audio described performance access days enable visually impaired patrons to enjoy a range of activities that enhance the enjoyment and understanding of ballet.

The day consists of Touch Tour Insight, which introduces elements of the production to aide in your understanding of the show. You will hear a description of the scenery, feel the props and costumes, and discover the shapes and quality of the movement from the ballet with the aid of Company dancers.

The audio described performance, described by VocalEyes, enables patrons to enjoy the story of the ballet and the emotion and quality of movement accompanied by live music from Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

Northern Ballet’s production of Jane Eyre will be performed at Leeds Grand Theatre from Wednesday 7 March – Wednesday 14 March. The audio described performance will take place on Saturday 10 March.

The Touch Tour Insight will take place from 12.00pm – 1.15pm and is free to visually impaired patrons and your companion. The audio described performance starts at 2.30pm.

A limited number of tickets are available at £12 per person for users of the audio description service. Tickets will be priced at £50 per person thereafter. Booking fees may apply. For more information or to book tickets, please call the theatre Box Office on 0844 848 2700.

Please make sure you inform the Box Office that you are booking for an audio described performance and let them know if you wish to attend the Touch Tour Insight, as it’s useful for us to know how many people to expect and also of any access needs you may have.
