Putting marginalised cultures centre stage by British Council Arts published on 2016-09-15T15:42:40Z In this Arts Podcast, we look at how marginalised cultures take centre stage in a couple of exciting projects we're involved with. Southbank Centre's biennial Unlimited Festival celebrates the artistic vision and originality of disabled artists. In September, selected works from the Unlimited commissions programme will be presented at Glasgow's Tramway during the art centre's two week disability arts festival of the same name. Among these commissions is Hiraeth, a collaboration between Candoco Associate Artist Jemima Hoadley and NCA.Small Theatre, Armenia, which came out of the British Council’s Unlimited: Making the Right Moves programme. The piece is Armenia's first ever integrated dance project, bringing together disabled and non-disabled artists, and tells the story of the journey of the Armenian people throughout their history. Jemima and NCA. Small Theatre's Vahan Badalyan tell us more about the project. We're also joined by Paula McFetridge, Artistic Director of Kabosh Theatre Company, Belfast. Paula has recently been involved in research and conferences looking at conflict resolution in three countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, and tells us more about her experiences. Unlimited: Making the Right Moves programme is supported by the British Embassy in Yerevan, the Ministry of Culture of RA, St. Sarkis Charity Trust and the Armenian diaspora in the UK. The project partner is the National Center of Aesthetics Small Theater. Find out more: Image: 'Hiraeth' ('Homesick') inclusive performance premiere. Photo by Photolure.
