Marking 100 years since the end of the First World War, Magpie Dance present their flagship performance and exhibition exploring the ‘Hidden Impact’ of people with learning disabilities, their journeys and contributions to the First World War.
Magpie Dance’s company dancers, all of whom have learning disabilities, are set to perform a stunning ritual interpreting the stories of people with learning disabilities, their journeys and contributions to the First World War. From those displaced when asylums were requisitioned as war hospitals, to the journeys some made to the front line, it's a stirring performance that will have your emotions running high.
Delivered in partnership with Ruskin College and self-advocacy group My Life, My Choice, this flagship performance and exhibition is the culmination of research never undertaken before. The research underpins a brand new exhibition of the findings, revealing the stories of people with learning disabilities. An exclusive presentation and Q&A session with Lee Humber from Ruskin College will also take place at 3.30pm before the performance. Spaces to this special opportunity are free, but limited, so must be booked in advance with your performance tickets.
‘Hidden Impact’ will be featured in the January edition of ‘Community Living’ magazine. Its legacy will be housed both online and by Bromley Museum Collection at Central Library. This performance and exhibition is your chance to see it first in full.
The performance includes an interval. Due to the themes covered the performance is suitable for ages 12 and upwards. The venue is fully accessible.
Refreshments and programmes will be available for purchase. All proceeds go directly to the work of Magpie Dance.
With thanks to Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England.
