Indel-ABILITY Arts, an inclusive theatre company formed by artists who identify as having a disability, is set to raise the curtain on its first ever production on 7 September at the Brisbane Powerhouse.
‘Look Mum… No Hands!!!’, a performance funded by Endeavour Foundation’s Endowment Challenge Fund, offers an entertaining and eye-opening insight into the pursuit of artistic recognition in a creative world that struggles with difference.
Through dialogue, music and humour, the audience is given a searingly honest peek into the lived experience of disability.
One of two successful Q Art Non-Profit awards from the Endeavour Foundation Endowment Challenge Fund, the grant was announced by CEO Andrew Donne.
“We’re extremely pleased to be able to help support the provision of an accessible theatre experience,” Mr Donne said.
“We know that people with a disability have so much to offer our communities, and we’re delighted to support this innovative and inclusive enterprise.”
The performance, which celebrates individual journeys towards independence – in both form and content – aims to challenge preconceptions about disability.
Co-Artistic Directors Rebecca Roberts and Catarina Hebbard are excited by the project’s potential.
“Thanks to the Endeavour Foundation Endowment Challenge Fund we will be able to increase audience inclusion and create new partnerships within the performing arts industry.
“It is vital that we make each and every show as accessible as possible and, to that end, the grant will also enable us to up-skill our performers in AUSLAN.”
The company’s Brisbane Powerhouse debut will be followed by a one-off show at the Redlands Performing Arts Centre on 2 September, which will include a workshop on inclusive theatre for audience members and the general public.
The Endeavour Foundation Endowment Challenge Fund is a public benevolent institution that seeks to benefit the wider Australian disability sector as a whole, with an emphasis on inclusion for people with an intellectual disability.
It is a capital-preserved fund, with donations invested and interest earned used to support Endowment Challenge Fund annual grants.
