Stories of London – Eye Queue Hear
Access All Areas is a theatre company based in Hackney which works with people with learning disabilities to help present their perspectives on life through the medium of performance. Continually attempting to stretch the boundaries of what's considered possible for learning-impaired performers, they've recently been looking at developing site-specific works to better engage audiences and to bring their actors' work to a broader and more diverse audience.
Their forthcoming piece, called 'Stories of London: Eye Queue Hear', has been developed with Rich Mix and will take participants on an audio journey from the venue and around the nearby streets, to watch and listen into the lives of people with learning disabilities and their perceptions of urban life. Taking the history of the IQ test as inspiration, it seeks to present a fresh perspective on what 'IQ' is, and how and if indeed at all we should measure it.
An innovative, locally-focused project, we look forward to checking it out on 21st September - and seeing what else Access All Areas come up with in the future.
