DaDaFest Announces the Full Programme of Events for its 2016 Festival

DaDaFest is delighted to announce the full programme of events for its thirteenth festival, “Skin:Deep”, taking place from 17 November to 3 December 2016. This year’s festival will present an array of outrageous, diverse and radical disability and Deaf arts that will challenge public perceptions of disability, ignite debate and celebrate disability culture.

Highlights include; a performance from the Grammy-nominated “Afro-funk” duo from Mali, Amadou and Mariam; “The Viewing” – a groundbreaking 24 hour durational performance piece viewable throughout the night; the hit new show from Liz Carr “Assisted Suicide: The Musical” and “Burlesque from Biscuitland” – a surreal cabaret show hosted by Jess Thom (aka TourettesHero) where anything can and will happen!
