Adding a new dimension to surtitling!

We have been pioneering the use of smartglasses for performance accessibility: after a first successful run at the Avignon Festival in 2015, we are now operating several other projects in different cities in Europe, including Paris, Berlin and Avignon. This new technology enables surtitles to be shown in individual spectators’ eyelines. Surtitles in an alternative language can simultaneously be displayed above or beside the stage
