What do the audience think?

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).
