[with Mitchell Kurtz Architect PC]
As part of this theater renovation, an innovative video intercom and light signalling system was installed to allow deaf students to learn stagecraft and lighting design.
The stage was extended out into the audience, enhancing intimacy and interaction between audience and performer. Large subwoofers were installed under the stage, creating a vibration effect to allow music to be experienced by deaf performers and their audience.
