We have been contacted by MAYK about a disability arts project that’s been commissioned by Unlimited, and is being presented by MAYK & Arnolfini in Bristol in May 2021.The project is called A Crash Course in Cloudspotting by the artist Raquel Meseguer Zafe. Raquel’s work creates theatrical encounters that explore the lived experience of Hidden Disability. Her work also claims rest + horizontality as sites for story telling and spectatorship. Raquel’s project invites people with chronic pain and other Hidden Disabilities, who need to rest throughout to share a story and use our App to communicate their rest with our audience during shows at the end of May (anonymously). Photo of the app is below. When participants press ‘start resting’ on our App, it triggers a unique sound loop. Together, these sound loops create the sonic landscape we invite our audience to rest within. This sonic landscape illuminates our collective rest, and in doing so illuminated the hidden worlds of Neurodiverse communities.
