Scotland's only International Disability Arts Festival
11-20 August 2005
|Theatre Workshop’s Degenerate Festival brings together leading disabled artists whose work and vision challenge outdated stereotypes and create a culture of excellence and diversity. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2005 welcomes Degenerate 3 to Theatre Workshop’s stages, a diverse and eclectic programme of outstanding work across a wide spectrum of art forms: theatre, physical theatre, film, play-readings, theatre for children and book events.
||This year’s programme includes the premiere of Pig’s Sister by Julie McNamara, in association with Theatre Workshop, an interesting look at people disconnected from their identities. The Drill Hall presents Signs of a Diva, performed by the UK’s leading 'sign songstress' Caroline Parker. Barclays Theatre Award Winners, Mind the Gap, make their first appearance at the Edinburgh Festival and we are delighted to welcome back Deborah Williams with the witty, charming and tuneful production of Good Little N***a. The Voice Stealer by Steve Holland, is an innovative show for children and adults, examining issues around stuttering. |
Lung Ha’s has made its mark as one the most interesting and avant-garde companies in Scottish Theatre. The Company’s work is a dynamic fusion of theatrical invention, technological creativity and poetic writing, which challenges its audience while still being accessible to all. Lung Ha’s Theatre Company will bring Monster’s Tears to Degenerate 3: a new visual, musical and highly theatrical work, written by John Binnie.
For the first time London Disability Film Festival comes to Edinburgh and Degenerate 3, on 14 and 15 August with Alrick Riley’s Every Time You Look At Me and a programme of Scottish and international shorts.
A selection of play readings will give audiences the chance to hear inspirational new work by playwrights - with up-and-coming future stars of the stage appearing at a cabaret evening on Thursday 18 August.
