DaDa presents a winter programme to entertain and educate

DaDa is set to present a trio of fascinating, funny and thought-provoking events as part of its winter 2023 programme.

The disability-led Liverpool arts organisation, which celebrates and promotes the best of disability and Deaf artists and performers, hopes the programme taking place over the next month will both entertain and educate.

It opens at the Unity Theatre on November 23 with the premiere of Toilet Paper Diaries, a new play by performer and theatremaker Porcelain Delaney (pictured) which has been co-commissioned with Manchester Independents.

Eloise is in a hospital bathroom with a sample pot, but she just can’t go. Fast rewind to her childhood diaries, which explain what has brought a seemingly happy girl to this point.

The heart-breaking and hilarious tale, performed by Delaney and with creative captions, BSL interpretation and audio description, is one anyone with endometriosis – or another condition which has led to medical ‘gaslighting’ – will appreciate.

Then on November 24, the Hope Place theatre stages an evening of DaDa Cabaret with a line-up of deaf, disabled and neurodivergent acts which includes poets Joan Cooper Snark and Shaun Fellows, comedians Lizzy Lenco and Eden MW and singer Miss Sunny Sarah.

The evening is hosted by Diva Hollywood, with Dora Belle delivering BSL interpretation.

Tickets for both nights are available from the Unity.

Finally, the Museum of Liverpool is the venue for the annual Edward Rushton Social Justice Lecture which takes place on Sunday, December 3 and this year features artist Ashokkumar D Mistry who will talk about Reclaiming Nonchalance – exploring the value of disabled lives, particularly children and young people.

The event will also feature a panel made up of artist and professor Kai Syng Tan, artist, writer and consultant Sonia Boue, and Dr Linzi Stauvers, acting artistic director, education, at Birmingham’s Ikon Gallery.
