Overview

Performed by an exceptional cross-genre, all-disabled ensemble. Made remotely by artists shielding at home during the COVID pandemic, it’s both by and for people who cannot attend theatre or music in person. Includes creative captioning and integrated audio description. The pre-recorded performance will be followed by a live discussion chaired by Together! 2012 Artistic Director Dr Ju Gosling.

Hannah needs help. She meets Lynn. Lynn works for a company that works for the Department of Work and Pensions. An assessment takes place. And then something else.

The 50-minute audio experience transforms the transcript of a Personal Independence Payment (PIP) benefits interview with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). An encounter between two women, a listener at home, and a riotous chorus of disabled voices, it shares disabled people’s experiences under austerity in the UK, as well as radical, surprising and utopian perspectives on self, society and the body. The work is fully digital. It is pre-recorded, but it is not a record of a live event happening elsewhere. It is an intimate audio experience, culminating in a shared moment of (real or imaginary) dance.

Age Recommendation: 15+
This performance includes discussion of ableism and mention of suicide and death.
