Coinciding with the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, September sees the much anticipated return of Southbank Centre's Unlimited festival, which celebrates the artistic vision and originality of disabled artists. Join a festival of dance, music, literature, comedy, visual arts and theatre from around the world that celebrates difference with a spirit of artistic adventure, honesty and humour.
Highlights include the first ever solo stand-up comedy performance by Touretteshero Jess Thom, the world premiere of Assisted Suicide: The Musical by Liz Carr and a dance duet from leading artists Claire Cunningham and Jess Curtis. These artists continue to break boundaries, challenge taboos and drive innovation in imaginative and unexpected ways.
From London, Chickenshed presents Tales from the Shed and invites you to enjoy a vibrantly interactive theatre show designed for young children. Tales from the Shed shows are lively and informal, inviting performers and audience to share the same space. There is no edge of the stage - just a single inclusive space where everyone joins in a dramatic dialogue with everyone else. It couldn't be further removed from watch-and-listen theatre, and the possibilities are as limitless as our imaginations.
