FREE ONLINE D4D FESTIVAL FEATURING NEW VIC BORDERLINES EXPLORES DISABILITY AND THE ARTS

30th June 2021

New Vic Borderlines will join the online celebrations next month to mark the end of a five-year research project investigating how disabled people express, perform, experience and practise community.

The D4D Mini Festival – taking place online from 2 to 9 July – is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Connected Communities programme.

Future Perfect Future Imperfect: Hybrids, Scroungers or Just Phased Out? presented by New Vic Borderlines on Friday 2 July from 2.00pm to 4.00pm, is an opportunity to explore the outcomes of the research. Vaneeka Dadhria (Unite – It’s Not As Simple As Black and White, New Vic Borderlines; Cyrano de Bergerac, Playhouse, West End) and Robin Simpson (Anna of the Five Towns, Beryl at the New Vic) will perform sections of a New Vic Borderlines original script filmed by Screen South, alongside interviews, animations and poetry from academics and community members as part of the festival.

The D4D Mini Festival features a number of different contributing projects exploring areas such as robotics, the arts, education, employment, genetics and gaming. For the full programme of events, click here.
