We had a simple question – where are the disabled performers of the future in Scotland? Following a period of extensive research to find out what’s currently going on around the country…
Birds of Paradise Theatre Company present an introduction to Disability Theatre and Performance
Interested in theatre and the performing arts? Want to try your hand?
Garry Robson and Robert Gale – the two Artistic Directors of Birds of Paradise – will be running half day sessions for individuals and groups interested in finding out more about Disability Theatre and creative access. The day will be in two parts
Part 1 will introduce you to the work of professional deaf and disabled performers in Scotland and beyond and demonstrate how this influx of new artists and the imaginative application of access is changing the face of modern theatre and performance. This session is open to anyone interested in finding out more about disability theatre and performance, from individuals to groups and organisations who want to make their work as inclusive as possible or who want to find out what is going on in this area.
Part 2 is a chance to try out some new skills. We are on a talent search throughout Scotland – we’re interested in finding a new generation of artists and performers who we will work with in 2015 to create a new show written by leading Scottish playwright David Greig. If you identify yourself as being disabled and are interested in the arts come along and have a go. You could be just the person we’re looking for.
These sessions took place in 2015 in Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow – to book a place on one of the workshops please click here. If you are coming along to audition for us then please prepare a short piece – a monologue, a song, a short dance or some other brief performance. This should be something that you feel comfortable with and know well.
