AUSLAN INTERPRETED AND CAPTIONED EVENTS EVENTS

Auslan interpreted events and performances are designed for patrons who use Australian Sign Language (Auslan). Experienced Auslan theatre interpreters appear on screen for digital events and translate the dialogue into Auslan in real time. Interpreters can be viewed on your screen at all times. 

In a captioned performance the dialogue and sound effects are converted into text and displayed on screen.
