Slavka Jovanović, Education Consultant at Crying Out Loud, has recently created a Visual Story for THESE BOOKS ARE MADE FOR WALKING, a show created by Bikes & Rabbits and supported by Crying Out Loud.

A Visual Story is a visual resource that prepares the audience for the show they are coming to see. It is a step-by-step guide to what to expect in the performance, including all the spoilers. It is normally used to prepare people for a Relaxed Performance. This is a performance that has a more relaxed attitude to noise and movement and may include some changes to the light and sound effects. Relaxed Performances have been well received by children, young people and adults with autism, communication difficulties and other learning disabilities and neurological conditions, such as Tourette’s syndrome. The Visual Story is one of several important components to creating a successful Relaxed Performance experience.

You are welcome to use this Visual Story as a guide to making your own, or contact Slavka Jovanović to create resources on your behalf. She also delivers training to artists and venues on creating and supporting Relaxed Performances. Her contact details are: Slavka.j[at]googlemail.com or 07969 442557.
