CRIPtic Pit Party
Squad grad Tom Walters will be on stage this October performing Seasick as part of CRIPtic Pit Party, a hope-filled solo and mixed bill of work by disabled artists on at the Barbican.
To start, headliner Jamie Hale performs their poetry 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.
