NDS are visitor experience and audience engagement specialists. We have been providing intelligent, interactive, live interpretation solutions for organisations across the globe for over twenty years.
Transform your messages, themes and narratives into meaningful and engaging experiences for your audience.
Develop unique visitor experiences from large-scale public programs (performances designed to extend an exhibition narrative) to small intimate interpretation tours.
We can deliver an entire concept from start to finish or simply facilitate a creative workshop to help you devise a new performance or refresh existing public tours and programs.
We believe that every tour, walk, talk, presentation, exhibition, public program and performance can inspire and engage an audience, create personal connections and facilitate deeper discussion.
Training & Professional Development
We are experts at integrating professional theatre skills and applied improvisation techniques into live interpretation and communication training for tour guides, interpretation staff, education staff, volunteers, retail staff, hosts and all visitor support staff in your organisation. We offer group workshops and individual coaching for professional development.Read more
