The Future of Inclusive Theatre

Event date:

Time: 
18:00
Location: 
Fringe Central (Appleton Tower)
Snigel and Friends

A panel discussion with Caroline Bowditch (performance artist and choreographer); Dr Ben Fletcher-Watson (University of Edinburgh); Michael Richardson (Heriot-Watt University). As relaxed performances and BSL interpretation of theatre continue to rise, this panel asks: how will inclusive practice develop in the future? Autism-friendly spaces, D/deaf theatre and neurodivergent- and disabled-led companies all point towards new possibilities for performance by, and with, previously excluded groups. Examples of promising practice will be discussed, along with proposals for the future.

BSL Interpreted
