FCA Commission – Proud and Loud Arts, Theatre Company

Posted on Jun 06, 2016

Full Circle Arts is delighted to announce the following commission:

Proud and Loud Arts, Theatre Company: An interactive performance exploring difference, disability and stigma.

We are responding to The Manchester Evening News report, earlier this year, of a 140% rise in reported hate crime incidents against disabled people.

Proud and Loud Arts will work with 11 artists, who live with disability labels, to research and develop an interactive performance piece for non-theatre spaces exploring difference, disability and stigma. The artists will create this work from their personal experiences, and by taking inspiration from Erving Goffman’s – ‘Stigma: Notes on the Management of Spoiled Identity.’
