The topic for this session will be ‘Creating integrated performances’, guest speakers to include Elise Davison, Taking Flight Theatre Company; Clare Williams of Hijinx Theatre Company and Jonny Cotsen. They will be sharing insight into their processes of creating work where access is integrated from the very start and throughout creation.

Jules’ Coffee Mornings are a place to get creative, to glue stringy balloon sculptures, to learn a waltz and to speak out.
Inspired by the real experiences of many brave women, join six who are now finding their voices. It’s not all just tea and biscuits. So you see, we know what you think of us, we know what we’ve become. That’s why we’re here…we’re trying to work out together how we move on. How we survive.

This production has a trigger warning of domestic abuse and the age guidance is 15 years and over.

When a clueless, but very well-intentioned theatre company attempt to stage their interpretation of an Oscar Wilde classic, objectivity, tradition, British politeness, handbags and several cups of tea fly out the window!

This innovative 60-minute comedy features fully integrated live audio description for visually impaired and sighted audiences to enjoy alike. A touch tour is incorporated into the show and open to everyone. The show will be performed ‘in the round’ with seats arranged around a central acting area.

Seating is unreserved – full price tickets are £10 and concessions are £8.00.

For further booking details You can visit elbowroomtheatre.com and click on the particular venue listed under ‘Tour Dates’.

So, in earnest, throw away those headsets. We’re all in this together!

AND SUDDENLY I DISAPPEAR: the Singapore-UK ‘d’ Monologues

Kaite O’Reilly’s Unlimited International Commission

Produced in the UK by The Llanarth Group

Chapter, Cardiff

September 11th and 12th

8pm

A multilingual, intercultural theatre project, a creative dialogue between UK and Singapore-based artists in an exploration of what it is to be human on opposite sides of the world. Supported by an Unlimited International commission, O’Reilly’s fictionalised monologues shed light on the lived experience of being Deaf or disabled in both the UK and Singapore, and the public perceptions, social attitudes, national agendas as well as misconceptions, stigmas and barriers that empower and/or disempower the individual.  A poignant, powerful, humorous, and philosophical celebration of ‘the atypical’, showcasing stories previously unshared.

This accessible performance includes an ensemble cast of seven outstanding performers from the UK/Singapore, a visually striking set of short pre-recorded videos, visual theatre sequences and a stimulating soundscape. It uses the aesthetics of access, including creative captioning and integrated audio description.

Tickets: £12/£10 

Box Office:  029 2030 4400
