Little Cog in association with ARC Stockton presents
At the heart of a day celebrating the spirit of Teesside, Occupation shares the real life experiences of disabled people near you and celebrates people coming together, in spite of everything.
In a world of sanctions, forced treatment, and divided communities, people are being pushed to the edge.
An ex-soldier, a lost youth, a professional and a parent take their places around a monument at a disability rally, and shine a light on how austerity has affected disabled people and their families and what it means for generations to come. They are being pushed onto the streets to make their voices heard. ‘Human rights’ are ridiculed and people who would never before have dreamed of attending a protest are now gathering to speak out.
With an original music score by North East musician and composer Keith Mills, comic silent movies pastiches, and four fantastic actors who are accompanied by a 15 strong chorus from local community groups, Occupation is going to be a real community event.
Written by Pauline Heath and Directed by Vici Wreford-Sinnott
Please note: Both performances of Occupation will be BSL interpreted
