THE SPILL FESTIVAL OF PERFORMANCE IS AN INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF LIVE ART, ACTIVISM AND PERFORMANCE PRESENTING THE WORK OF EXCEPTIONAL ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE.
A three-screen video work exploring issues of disability and power, starring Angela Dawn Wright, Giovanna Maria Casetta, Rowan James & Tonny.
Moving Mountains is an installation of arresting images and a dark soundtrack, that distil a public response, from and on behalf of disabled people, to experiences of prejudice or assault – big or small, subtle or overt – that take place pretty much daily. But this does not mean it starts from being victims, and in the words of one participant, “fuck your sympathy”.
The work starts with a question: whose responsibility is it to deal with instances of oppression faced by disabled people. Or rather, people who are disabled by a world that ‘others’ their physical or mental realities?
