BSL interpreted performance.

Benefit cuts are hitting disabled people the hardest. Half of people in poverty are disabled or live with a disabled person. The future looks grim, so how can we get people to sit up, listen and care and not keel over with empathy-fatigue?

Award-winning poet and theatre maker Jackie Hagan’s way has been to make a new solo show that features the real voices of proper skint disabled people she knows. Jackie has conducted interviews with people from all over the country living on the fringes and the spaces in between.

These are not sob stories – they are well rounded lives full of the spiky humour and the complicated weirdness of being human. Jackie weaves these narratives together with poetry and anecdotes, celebrating the weird, the wonky, the unruly, and the resilient.

Expect audience interaction, DIY puppetry, poetic comedy, comedic poetry, and one underclass amputee steering the show.

Praise for ‘This Is Not A Safe Space’

‘Warm, welcoming and funny…this politically urgent show about disability and poverty is wryly humorous and affecting’ The Stage

‘a perfect antidote to programs like Benefits Street.’ Disability Arts Online

‘fierce use of humour teamed with passionate insight about working-class life’ Mancunion

‘honest, uncompromising, tough and tender – and funny – and rails against the vilification of the working class and the disabled, and their portrayal as either saints or victims’ Sabotage Reviews

Signs of My Times

Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People hosted the launch of Martin Smith’s new book on Saturday 12th May.

Signs of my Times’

This is the story of LSDBP over the last sixty years, the communities who make it and the social and cultural changes the society has gone through.

In 1957, Martin started work as an “Assistant Welfare Officer in the Deaf and Dumb Department of the Leeds Incorporated Institution for the Blind and the Deaf and the Dumb” at 135 Albion Street. His book details the changes in societal attitudes, and the development of LSDBP over the next 60 years.

It was such a lovely event for all attending! Congratulations, Martin!
