Relaxed Performances

Lincoln Center believes the arts are for all! We welcome guests to come as they are and be their full selves. Open to all, but designed for people with autism, sensory and communication disorders or learning disabilities. The artistic integrity of the piece remains unchanged, however modifications to social and sensory environment may be made. This structure can also be beneficial for people who are neurodivergent, families with young children and anyone who finds traditional performance protocols do not work for their needs.
