CRIPtic Pit Party image

Award-winning artist Jamie Hale curates a joyful and uplifting Pit Party comprising a mixed bill of creative, political and responsive work by d/Deaf and disabled performers.
Following their sold-out Pit Party in 2019, Jamie invites d/Deaf and disabled artists to respond to the theme of ‘the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves, by ourselves’. Sets will include music, spoken word, poetry and a dynamic collaboration between Deaf hip hop artists.
Barbican Open Lab alumni and Evening Standard Future Theatre Fund winner Jamie Hale returns following their sold-out Pit Party in 2019. These performances are the culmination of an artistic development programme led by Jamie, supporting a cultural arts scene that has been hit hard by the pandemic. Their Pit Party recreates deeply personal experiences rarely represented on stage in a spirited, celebratory atmosphere.
