By Jackie Hagan
Award-winning poet and theatre maker Jackie Hagan’s way has been to make a new solo show that features the real voices of proper skint disabled people she knows. Jackie has conducted interviews with people from all over the country living on the fringes and the spaces in between. These are not sob stories – they are well rounded lives full of the spiky humour and the complicated weirdness of being human. Jackie weaves these narratives together with poetry and anecdotes, celebrating the weird, the wonky, the unruly, and the resilient.
Expect audience interaction, DIY puppetry, poetic comedy, comedic poetry, and one underclass amputee steering the show.
This is Not A Safe Space is commissioned and supported by Unlimited, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Arts Council England. Supported with funding from BlueSCI Wellbeing, Contact and Full Circle Arts. Produced by Big Feast.
This performance is BSL interpreted
There will be a post show talk back after the performance.
