Liberty Unbound

Liberty Unbound, the Mayor’s disability arts festival had an exciting new twist for 2018. Instead of one big event in one location, Circulate brought Liberty Unbound to you. Enfield, Hounslow and Deptford hosted 3 fantastic free performances at local venues. A vibrant programme of music, theatre, art, dance, and sculpture celebrated diversity in the creative arts, and made sure that everyone could enjoy the action!

The exciting line up included: Graeae, the UK’s leading Deaf and disability theatre company, with their adaptation of ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes, which featured a puppet as tall as a double decker bus, Candoco Dance Company who performed Caroline Bowditch’s moving new duet ‘Dedicated To…’ celebrating female strength, friendship and support, the Deaf Rave DJs who got the festival started every day with their original sign songs and DJ sets, and Jason Wilsher-Mills who presented his sculptures Brave Boy Billy and The Corby Princess, which audiences loved interacting with through tablets that triggered augmented reality aspects of the sculptures.
