Three ushers and 1 production staff will be supporting patrons. Folks using our Audio Description services are encouraged to bring a companion or friend for support navigating the show, at no cost. Please make note on your ticket order, or when you’re reserving via phone: 415-561-6565.
For blind and visually impaired audience members, Joe Goode Performance Group partners with Gravity Access Services to offer live audio description and a haptic access tour. Audio description is a live audio track spoken by a professional audio describer to audience members with visual impairments through a wireless headset system. It provides clear and engaging descriptions of the meaningful visual details of a performance. Haptic access tours (20-30 minutes) are a live pre-show tour that allows patrons to experience—through touch and their own movement— the space, performers, costumes and objects in addition to key movement elements in the performance.
For more information, to book a spot in a Haptic Access Tour or to reserve a headset please call: 415-561-6565

Time of Change will weave and examine the utopian ideals and failures of the hippie era – as they relate to our current revolution. The project will uplift real peoples’ histories, examine the whiteness of the hippie movement, and explore what intersectional liberation means.
Where: Outdoor and indoor locations in the Haight-Ashbury Neighborhood
