Wheel Voices TuneIN! Round Table
Hosted by Realwheels Theatre
Wheel Voices TuNeIN! is a response to YOUR enthusiasm to create a new large-scale community show integrating music in all kinds of ways!
Professional artists – with and without disabilities – will lead twice-weekly participatory workshops over a 15-18-week period, culminating in a three-night production at the Roundhouse Performance Space (May 28-30, 2020).
Create your own original scene work, monologues, rap, spoken word, etc. and we’ll seamlessly integrate musical elements (choral work, drumming, potentially producing loops, clips, samples, or rhythms), mixed together to create ‘mash-up’ compositions that support stories rooted in the disability experience.
Our Wheel Voices projects are transformative! We build new social bonds, engender pride in the disability identity, and impact audience perceptions about disability. We harness theatre-based tools to unite community and foster increased empathy, social connection, and cooperation.
How to get involved
In early 2020, we’ll host round tables with the community to bounce ideas and clarify expectations. Email us if you’d like to participate in a round table (the best way to learn what this project will be about), and we’ll send you an invite.
