In this demonstration, playwright and theatre maker Kaite O’Reilly will talk about her work over twenty five years in inclusive practice.
A leading figure in the UK’s disability arts scene, and an award-winning ‘mainstream’ playwright, she will reflect on her work within disability culture, collaborations between hearing and deaf artists, and in inclusive productions. She will show video examples of her use of the ‘aesthetics of access’ from In Water I’m Weightless (National Theatre Wales / Southbank Centre / Unlimited Festival), spoken / visual languages in Woman of Flowers and other work from her selected inclusive plays Atypical Plays for Atypical Actors (Oberon).
There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion about best practice and what she views as the future of theatre: inclusive performance.
