Panel Discussion: Neurodivergent Futures In Performance
Sat 16 October 2021
Neurodivergent Futures Panel
Join a panel of neurodivergent artists as they share their creative practices, and engage in collective discussion on the potentialities of neuro-inclusive and neurodivergent-led futures in performance practice. We'll question:
- What would a performance sector without barriers for neurodivergent artists be like?
- What do our allies in the industry need to do now to make this a reality?
- How can neurodivergent performance practices and knowledges change the world for the better?
- How can neurodivergent performance challenge neuronormativity to bring us to new aesthetic potentials?
Each artist will offer a short provocation on their work to begin, before we move into a collective discussion from the panellists and close with opportunities from the audience to further open the dialogue with questions and responses.
Chaired by Leonie Rae Gasson
Panellists include Jo Hauge and Chanje Kunda
NEUROSTAGES is a Relaxed Festival. This means that it takes the approach of Relaxed Performance across all festival activity, both in-person and online.
Relaxed Performances were created to make watching performance more accessible by ‘relaxing’ the usual rules of theatre etiquette – they allow for noise and movement from the audience, as well as tailoring light and sound for those with sensory sensitivities.
All live events will be wheelchair accessible.
All online events will be captioned.
BSL for live and online events to be confirmed.
There will be an option of high sensory or low sensory dedicated chillout spaces at CCA.
An easy to read festival guide, audio introduction, visual guide and printable programme for the CCA will also be made available.
