pathway to writing for movement & engagement with learning-disabled actors


Five composers/sound artists from a broad stylistic range (shown above) were recruited to work in the Hijinx Academies – which train learning-disabled actors in Aberystwyth, Cardiff, Carmarthen and Prestatyn. Lead composer Tic Ashfield provided mentoring in writing for movement / theatre / dance while support in working in a learning-disabled training setting came from local choreographers and course leaders.  


The selected artists were resident in their local Academy for one session per week creating a work for the Academy actors to perform with in their end-of-term sharing.
