Abstract

This paper discusses the experiences of dancers, choreographers and those with visual impairment who worked collaboratively to develop a participatory dance, technology and choreography project called Sound Pad. The project was constructed and evaluated using a combination of participatory and grounded methodology, a practice framework of rationale method and the development of inclusive capital. This report aims to explore the development of this co-created sensorially and intellectually inclusive education and performance through the experiences of dancers-as-teachers, and how this experience informs these dancers’ practice. In addition, it is designed to examine the commissioning of public dance performance as a means of inclusive public education, and to make performance art more culturally diverse.
