Theatre boxed off

unzipped-forest-barcode

Verbatim

A piece of theatre made entirely of real peoples harvested opinions and recollections, shaped into a structure and then presented theatrically. The process avoids authorial voice and guarantees authenticity.

Commercial

Popular, entertaining, accomplished and designed to attract a high ticket price.

Disability-led

Theatre or other art forms examining the disability life experience featuring the work of artists with disabilities, leading.

New writing

A play in script form written by a playwright which did not exist before this current production. Risky, as no one may like it, compare with ‘Midsummer Nights Dream’ which is less risky because people already know if they like it or not.

Relaxed performance

A specific style and context for theatrical delivery designed to support audiences with learning disabilities and neuro-differences.

LGBT/Transgender/Non binary

Theatre made by and for people who are not heterosexual and 100 per cent gender specific and identified.

Integrated

A piece of theatre featuring actors and collaborators who are not 100 per cent non disabled.

Dementia-friendly

Theatre framed to be appealing for people with dementia.

BAME

Theatre made with and by actors, artists and leadership which is not 100 per cent white.

Issues-based

A context in which to explore a specific concern arising from a state of difference or conflict.

Compelling, innovative, accessible, narrative-based, embracing, scorchingly written and daringly executed theatre from diverse voices which mitigates against the segregation of identity theatre could be a very good thing…

Right now…
