The Blue Orange Theatre
118 Great Hampton Street, Jewellery Quarter, B18 6AD Birmingham, United Kingdom
Hi all! Please come along to this if you can. Participants will showcase what they've been working on which includes original Rock songs and Spoken Word exploring the positives and negatives of what it's like living as a disabled person in modern society. It's going to be a really engaging provocative show, so please come along and show your support!
Permission to Perform, development opportunity for disabled artists, culminates in the final performance on Wednesday 19th July 2017 at 7pm at The Blue Orange Theatre.
All performers have been under the artistic guidance of author, artist, musician, as well as 9 times paralympic gold medallist, Robin Surgeoner.
As the lifestyles, structures and day-to-day challenges of young disabled people rarely permit free artistic expression, this initiative, funded by Birmingham City Council, sought to provide that opportunity specifically for such budding young artists, giving them that platform of expression and helping to identify the artists of the future.
As well as original rock and pop songs, the final performance includes Spoken Word, Devised Theatre and a Q & A session with young children asking participants about disability and how it affects one's daily life.
Performance: 19th July 2017, 7pm
Venue: The Blue Orange Theatre 118 Great Hampton Street Hockley Birmingham B18 6AD blueorangetheatre.co.uk
