In this innovative and collaborative video project, Zaccho Dance Theatre brings together 16 international aerial artists to tell a collective narrative during this time of uncertainty and social chaos. Taking place on mountain tops, old forts, bridges, and in gardens, this work reveals an intimate perspective of the world we are navigating. For blind and visually impaired audience members, Zaccho Dance Theatre partners with Gravity Access Services to offer audio described versions of our videos. Audio description is an audio track spoken by a professional audio describer to audience members with visual impairments to provide clear and engaging descriptions of meaningful visual details of the video. As part of a recent accessibility consultation with Gravity Access Services, Zaccho has learned that our website is difficult to experience with screen reader technologies. A new website is currently under development. In the meantime, Record Twenty Twenty may be experienced with audio description directly on Vimeo.
