For the first time, far° will offer inclusive and welcoming RELAX performances.
The text below is an English translation of a text written in FALC (Easy to Read and Understand French), written by the association Out of the Box, which coordinates the Relax outings in Geneva.
What is a RELAX outing?
A RELAX outing is an inclusive cultural event. Inclusive means suitable for everyone.
People with disabilities.
Adults with a baby.
People who are uncomfortable in closed public spaces.
How does it work?
Before the show:
Someone from the theatre welcomes you. You buy your ticket. Someone from the theatre gives you information about the show. You enter the venue. The lights dim a little. The show begins.
During the show:
The door to the venue remains open. That way you can come in and out whenever you want. The sounds of the show are soft. React however you want. For example, you can laugh very loudly. Someone from the theatre will be there if you need them.
At the end of the show you can:
Share a drink with your friends.
Talk about the show.
Ask someone in the theatre for help to get home, for example to find out about public transport timetables or call a taxi.
