In 2018, the theatre company Told By An Idiot and the Barbican Centre collaborated to organise an improvisational experiment performance workshop “Let Me Play The Lion Too”. In an intensive two weeks, a group of 12 performers six of whom have a disability, work together to devise new improvised evenings of anarchic spontaneity. the project aims to tackle the lack of diversity of the British theatre.
This year from 22nd to 26th October, the workshop “Let Me Play The Lion Too” was presented to the Beijing Inside-Out Theatre. Collaborated with local participants of 14 performers, seven of whom have a disability, work together to discover their unique artistic expressions. It is also a valuable opportunity to engage in barrier-free art for local performance theatres. – Planned, curated, coordinated and managed the workshop with our partner organisations and artists in UK and in China.
