A hit of Transpose, Jamie Hale’s searingly honest, incisive and deft poetry gripped audiences. Now they bring us a Pit Party comprising a hope-filled solo and mixed bill of work by disabled artists.
To start, Hale performs NOT DYING in which they recount their full-circle story of progressive disability, from the agony and gracelessness of threatening death to the jubilance and defiance of survival. To follow, D/deaf and disabled artists expand on the selected themes of anger, fortitude and joy in short sets of music, dance and spoken word. Together their Pit Party recreates deeply personal experiences rarely represented on stage in a spirited, celebratory atmosphere.
