Is the otherness of the actors (their disability) central to the audience’s perception of the theatre performance? If so, is it more of an added value or a distraction? And is it possible for the audience to completely forget about the actors’ otherness during the performance? We asked the audience after a performance of Stand Up Down and Antigone! The Aldente Theatre collaborated with the Janáček Academy of Performing Arts on research that included a psychological study of the audience’s perception of this type of theatre. The study by psychologist Lenka Pivodová can be found in the online publication Inclusion through Theatre: A Journey of an Actor with Down’s Syndrome to Cognisant Artistic Creation and Social Acceptance (page 189).
