LET ME PLAY THE LION TOO (2018/2019)

Created by Told by an Idiot, supported by Arts Council England, The City of London Corporation, Sky Arts 50, The Rayne Foundation and The Boris Karloff Charitable Foundation

Let Me Play The Lion Too: Beijing is supported by British Council China, co-produced by Performance Infinity 

Role: Performer (London); Assistant Director (Beijing)

An improvisational experiment in partnership with the Barbican Centre

In an intensive two week residency in The Pit, a group of 12 performers, six of whom have a disability, work with us to devise new improvised evenings of anarchic spontaneity. The process enables artists to develop their theatre making skills, and to push their imaginations and creativity in new ways, whilst looking to affect change in the wider arts infrastructure. 

'In a new partnership with the Barbican we announce our unique project entitled 'Let Me Play The Lion Too'. This will bring together twelve performers of exceptional promise, with an equal mix of those with a disability and those without. An intensive two week period of improvisation will empower them to take responsibility for their own creativity, and will culminate in evenings of anarchic spontaneity.' Paul Hunter, Artistic Director of Told by an Idiot.

Performance dates: 

1 - 3 March 2018 at Barbican Centre, London

26 October 2019 at Inside-Out Theatre, Beijing

工作坊&演出:剧场无限制——听说“狮子"人人都能演!

由英国艺术团体“痴人妄语”(Told by an Idiot)带来表演工作坊将是普通人和残障人士的一对一通力合作的成果。2018年,”痴人妄语”(Told by an Idiot)和英国巴比肯艺术中心展开合作,举办了《狮子人人都能演》的表演工作坊。通过让听力障碍人士、残疾人和普通演员一同参与和创作舞台作品,这个项目意在挑战英国剧场中多样性匮乏的问题。此次项目最终在巴比肯中心呈现了3场激动人心的演出。

 

2019年,“狮子”来到中间剧场,期待通过和本地参与者的合作交流,观察残障人士群体们是如何做出他们独有的艺术表达。而对表演运营机构来说,也是一次认识、接触无障碍艺术的机会。

演出日期:

2018年3月1日 - 3 日于伦敦芭比肯中心

2019年10月26日于北京中间剧场多功能厅
