Sunlight and Shadows - Kadisha Kayani

It's mid-covid, and Estelle sits in her house, reflecting on how her world seems to be slowly falling apart. She hasn't seen her friends in a while, and this additional time at home has got her tied up in technology. Beginning to question the bigger things in life, during this time, she also wonders when social media became such an annoyingly prominent part of her small, personal world.

Estelle’s mind wanders back to her childhood and how previous experiences have impacted her self-esteem, but her phone seems to be a great distraction, when things feel too much to handle in the present moment.

Slowly, the lines between what's real and what's fake are gradually blurring.

A story exploring the battles of communication, attachment, social media and the knock on effects to one's mental health.

Crash Landing - Rhiannon Jones
Crash Landing is a (very) early stage performance written and created by Rhiannon Jones as she begins to experiment with writing and integrated access, alongside combining her textile work with theatre. It tells the story of Zoe, a space explorer who crash lands from her spaceship onto an alien planet, and then has to navigate this strange new world.

With a set designed and made by Rhiannon - a bizarre fabric alien backdrop, her biggest textile work to date, and interactive captions this piece is an exciting experiment supported by DaDa that will hopefully develop further in the future.

Crash Landing will be performed in a mixture of BSL and Spoken English, with captions creatively embedded and will be a colourful and bizarre trip into outer space and beyond.

What is DaDaFest Scratch?

Scratch is an exciting opportunity, a creative space for disabled, Deaf and neurodivergent artists to showcase the early ideas of a piece of work. It is a place for them to discover, to discuss, to develop and to explore potential next steps.

Work developed for Scratch may go on to form part of our DaDaFest International Festival next year.
