Thursday 30 August 2018

Liberty Unbound, the Mayor's disability arts festival, has an exciting new twist for 2018. Instead of one big event, we're bringing Liberty Unbound to you. Enfield, Hounslow and Deptford will host 3 fantastic free performances at local venues. A vibrant programme of music, theatre, art and dance will celebrate diversity in the creative arts, making sure that everyone can enjoy the action!


Event Line Up:

Graeae, the UK’s leading Deaf and disability theatre company, will stage its classic adaptation of ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes, featuring a puppet as tall as a double decker bus. Ted Hughes' famous children's story is adapted by Paul Sirett and directed by Amit Sharma.

Candoco, a company of disabled and non-disabled dancers, will perform ‘Dedicated To...’. Caroline Bowditch's moving new duet celebrates female strength, friendships and support, exploring how people come in and out of our lives and how friendships shape who we are. 

Deaf Rave, founded by Troi Lee in 2003 as a quarterly event in London for deaf clubbers, will present several DJ sets, creating a kaleidoscope of sound for all to enjoy!
