Relaxed Festival

NEUROSTAGES is a Relaxed Festival. This means that it takes the approach of Relaxed Performance across all festival activity, both in-person and online.

Relaxed Performances were created to make watching performance more accessible by ‘relaxing’ the usual rules of theatre etiquette – they allow for noise and movement from the audience, as well as tailoring light and sound for those with sensory sensitivities.
