West Yorkshire Playhouse and Platforma invite you to a networking event exploring theatre, dance, refugees and migration. It will be a chance to hear from a variety of theatre companies, writers and performers and to learn about West Yorkshire Playhouse’s work as a Theatre of Sanctuary. There will be an opportunity to share your experiences and raise the issues that you feel are most pressing in this area of work. All are welcome.
Some bursaries are available to help with travel costs, particularly for those from refugee backgrounds.

Following the event, attendees are invited to a 6.30pm screening of Andrea Arnold’s award-winning Wuthering Heights, followed by a panel discussion. This can be booked at the reduced cost of £10. Click here for more information.
A signed performance is the usual full production using either the creative use of sign integrated into the performance or a British Sign Language Interpreter on stage interpreting the show for D/deaf attendees.Audio Described
Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.Relaxed Performance
A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.Dementia-Friendly Performance
Dementia friendly performances are for all audiences. The theatre experience is enhanced for people living with dementia and their supporters, with adaptations to front of house service, the show and pre-show information packs. Additional dementia-aware staff, quiet spaces, clear signage and visual markers, sound and lighting adjustments and flexible seating options all help to create a supportive, shared experience.Sing Along

Parent & Baby Performance
A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.
