Introduction from Ruth Gould MBE

Greetings, on this penultimate week before we launch DaDaFest International 2016, Skin:Deep!

I have deliberately chosen this theme as I desire to make sure our work can go beyond the superficial and get under the skin of all who engage with us. There is no excuse this year – with nine live-streaming events planned, we hope you will take time out to physically be present or connect with us digitally. We are producing a variety of exciting works, some very new to us and some that will be familiar to DaDaFest regulars! Skin:Deep has allowed us to explore issues around assisted suicide, transfusions, death, fat activism, the beauty of skin and so much more.

We have a huge scope of work, from the world exclusive with Sheree Rose and Martin O’Brian’s piece, The Viewing, through to Maddy and the Invisible Band of Groovers shows that we are determined to look at issues full on and take risks from the perspective of the lived experience of disability. We are returning once again with a two day International Congress enticing debate, viewpoints and conversations about how to make work by and with disabled artists, for all people in all spaces and places. There is more info below as to the delectable delights of this year’s Skin:Deep.

Do come and do let us know about your reactions and if we have reached our aim of getting under your skin!

Regards,
Ruth Gould MBE
Artistic Director
