The Copenhagen Interpretation

Created by

Editorial Team

This is a process for making theatre and getting involved in live performance storytelling. It's designed to centre and prioritise accessibility and inclusivity. Every performance is relaxed, BSL interpreted, accessible for wheelchair users, and audio described, with sighted guides available.   It is continuously developing and will always be imperfect.   For quick access, use the World Codex links to find info about how this process works, or just click here to join us on our Discord server where you can ask us questions.   Boxes like this give tl;dr info on every page.
 

Opening space for everyone

 
The Copenhagen Interpretation is a system created by Jenifer Toksvig, designed to be more broadly accessible than traditional theatre with more flexible and diverse opportunities to get involved.   The core aim is to create transformative story-world experiences that foster connection, creativity, and personal growth. Grounded in principles of accessibility, inclusivity, and community, it seeks to connect individuals with themselves, each other, and the broader narrative of our world.   Our guiding values are to provide comfortable and supportive environments, promote understanding and empathy, and inspire positive social change through story and theatre.   This is a process of community-empowered live performance (a bit like 'playable theatre') presented across analogue, digital, and live performance platforms. And some little tiny games here and there.   It's designed to be particularly accessible for neurodiverse audiences, with a focus on autism and ADHD.   We are continuously developing it, and discovering more about where it works, and why it always will, and should be, responsive and imperfect.
