Rationale Method

Accessibility Innovator

Nathan Geering
Nathan specialises in accessibility innovation and strives to make work that heightens accessibility for both disabled and non disabled artists and audiences. He was the Artistic Director of the 2017 Special Olympics Opening Ceremony which saw him bring together over 200 disabled and non disabled artists to perform in front of a live audience of 16,000 people.

His passion for innovating cutting edge technologies and accessibility within dance, theatre, music production and art has lead him to develop the multi-award winning Rationale Method of Audio Description which utilises the skills of beatboxers and poets to provide a richer soundscape for people with visual impairment.

Recent years has seen Nathan become a TEDx speaker, published author and multi-award winning film maker. He wrote, directed and edited the short film ‘Still A Slave in 2020, which  continues to collect awards at international festivals. He has featured on BBC television and worked with the likes of the National Theatre, The Royal Opera House, Wayne McGregor, British Council and Singapore Repertory Theatre.

Nathan is also part of the Sheffield Race Equality Commission and champions racial equality and diversity with the arts and beyond. He will be delivering a paper and screening ‘Still a Slave’ at the Hiphop in Higher Education Conference lead by the University of Sheffield on the 15th of July 2021.
He continues to implement his work both nationally and internationally and strives to provide opportunities that make art accessible for all.
