The theatre community is fortunate to have several recent documents that address access for Deaf performing artists and for audiences.

The DATT provides a comprehensive discussion of the entire theatre production cycle incorporating a Deaf cultural context. Based on the learnings from ULTRASOUND, the DATT expands the discussion beyond theatre access to describe theatre engagement of the Deaf community in the production process. The DATT is developed from the growth experience of a hearing based theatre company. For review of theatre that has emerged from within the Canadian Deaf community go to to find the Deaf Arts Handbook Series Volume III: Showtime – Deaf Theatre in Canada (in press) and Focus on Disability and Deaf Arts in Canada (2010) for a list of U.S. Deaf theatre companies.
